Ukraine International Airlines is the leading Ukrainian airline flying internationally and is based in the capital Kiev.
Ukraine International Flights. EXTRA FLIGHTS: There is an additional flight each Wednesday, Friday ans Saturday evening on the London-Gatwick to Kiev route. Ukraine International Airlines was the first Ukrainian airline to use western aircraft and has continued to play a leading role in the air travel market of this expanding country. The airline concentrates on international destinations, with flights from Kiev to Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dubai, Frankfurt, Helsinki, Kuwait, Lisbon, London -Gatwick, Madrid, Milan, Paris, Rome, Vienna and Zurich. Domestically flights operate between Kiev, Lvov and Simferopol.
Geographically Ukraine sits uncomfortably between Russia and the economic bloc of Eastern European countries. Politically it has swung backwards and forwards between being Eastern and Western facing. Ukraine International Airlines has always been a company pulling Ukraine towards the west. Its early use of Boeing aircraft, European management and choice of European capital and its route network were clear evidence of this. We recommend the airline for its efficiency and consistency of service, but it is coming under increasing competition from one of its more dynamic local competitors, Aerosvit.
