UIA carried Hasids and Ukrainian pilgrims


Within the period of September 7 – 21, 2015, Ukraine International Airlines carried Hasids and Ukrainian pilgrims from Israel to Ukraine and from Ukraine to Israel on scheduled and charter flights.

Therefore, 7289 adults and 4 infants took advantage of UIA services to reach Ukraine and celebrate Rosh Hashana. 3577 passengers were carried on UIA scheduled flights, while 3712 passengers traveled on one of 68 UIA charter flights operated from/to Tel Aviv to/from Kiev and Vinnitsa.

Over the period, nearly 2000 Ukrainian pilgrims took advantage of UIA charter services to quickly reach the Holy Land and to worship major Orthodox shrines of Israel.

Compared to the figures of September 2014, the number of Ukrainian pilgrims and Hasids carried in September 2015 increased by 124.9% and 120% respectively.

“It has already become a tradition for UIA to annually provide Hasids and Ukrainian pilgrims with an opportunity to conveniently reach their pilgrimage destinations, – noted Evgeniya Satska, UIA Corporate Press Secretary. – We regard each carriage to be a highly responsible assignment since all pilgrims must arrive to their destinations at the precise moment. We are very glad a growing number of pilgrims chose UIA to be their carrier to and from Ukraine”.
