Because it was a risky job
Ukraine’s airspace has been largely closed to passenger planes since the Russian invasion, as have some of its airports, leaving four Wizz Air planes stranded for nearly seven months. Flying at a low altitude may have helped the aircraft avoid detection by radar or anti-aircraft missiles.
“Wizz Air confirms that after a thorough risk assessment and careful preparation, its only Lviv-based aircraft departed from Danilo Halitsky International Airport and successfully landed in Katowice on September 13, 2022,” a spokesperson for the airline told Insider. The rescue mission is the first step in Wizz’s plans to rescue his planes. The airline did not comment on plans to free the remaining three Airbus planes still stuck in Kyiv.
