Ukraine International Airlines offers its passengers a more extensive range of travel destinations in July and August thanks to relaxed border crossing terms for Ukrainians travelling for tourism purposes.
Furthermore, the Ukrainian government has made a decision that makes crossing the Ukrainian border more comfortable and comprehensible. In particular, the countries of departure have been split into green and red zones. Passengers arriving from a "green zone" do not undergo observation or self-isolation in Ukraine. Passengers coming from a "red zone" must remain under a mandatory 14-day observation.

As planned, the airline will gradually increase the flight frequencies and the number of routes. However, we do not rule out a situational revision of frequencies based on market conditions and the economics of each flight.
UIA will operate domestic flights covering three destinations – Kherson, Odesa and Lviv.
From 1 to 30 July 2020, UIA will offer non-return domestic flights to Odesa, Lviv and Kherson once weekly on Fridays, with flights back to Kyiv on Sundays. This schedule will allow for the development of domestic weekend tourism, at the same time taking into account the interests of national business migration in Ukraine.
In the first half of August, only the Kyiv to Odesa timetable will change, with flights to be operated on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, and return Odesa-Kyiv services on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
From August 16 to August 31, we intend to add frequencies to Odesa on Thursday, and back to Kyiv on Fridays.

In addition, twice-weekly services from Kyiv to Amsterdam (AMS) are scheduled every Tuesday and Saturday, and from Kyiv to Paris (CDG) on Wednesdays and Sundays.
From July 16 to July 30, UIA is to increase frequencies by adding Kyiv – Istanbul (IST) and Kyiv – Tel Aviv (TLV) flights on Tuesdays. Flights to Dubai (DXB) will operate every Wednesday and Saturday. The airline also plans to expand its international routes with Kyiv to Larnaca (LCA) flights on Saturdays, Kyiv to Athens (ATH) on Sundays, Kyiv to London (LGW) on Mondays and Fridays. As of the second half of July, weekly Kyiv to Toronto (YYZ) services are scheduled on Saturdays and vice-versa on Sundays.

The route map will include Kyiv – Nice (NCE), Kyiv – Rome (FCO), Kyiv – Baku (GYD), Kyiv – Berlin (TXL), Kyiv – Milan (MXP), Kyiv – Prague (PRG), Kyiv – Yerevan (EVN), Kyiv – Chisinau (KIV), Kyiv – Madrid (MAD), Kyiv – Munich (MUC), Kyiv – Frankfurt (FRA), Kyiv – Vienna (VIE), and Kyiv – Barcelona (BCN).
