UIA postpones start of non-stop flights between Kyiv and NY

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) has updated its plans and schedule for non-stop wide-body flights between Kyiv and New York. UIA is planning to resume flights as the spring season takes hold in both cities, according to the airline’s press service.

Numerous factors have to be considered when planning these flights, and the determination is a fluid matter, understanding the worldwide coronavirus pandemic, governmental decisions regarding the opening of borders and the general economic situation around the world.

Understanding that many factors are beyond the control of UIA, and that the planning of long-haul flights is determined months of advance, UIA will make the determination on the number of non-stop flights and the final schedule later this year.

“UIA will closely monitor the economic recovery in the U.S. and Ukraine as well as the global responses to the COVID-19 pandemic by the governments of these countries and Israel, and other European countries," the report reads.

Additional factors that will be given consideration include the political situation in the Caucasus, which has recently led to the cancellation of UIA flights to Yerevan, Baku and Tbilisi, connecting flights important to the success of New York – Kyiv route. The combination of these many factors will impact how UIA will move forward for these flights.

Passengers already booked on UIA flights are encouraged to visit the airline’s website to gain access to new features in the "Booking Management" tool, which allows passengers to change dates and flights online.
