Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) is Ukraine’s leading airline established in 1992. Today, UIA is a 100% privately-owned company.

Safety is an absolute priority for UIA. Ukraine International was the first airline in the CIS to have earned the distinction of receiving the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) Certificate, having entered into the IOSA Registry.
