UIA increase requirements for domestic flights in accordance with the CMU guidelines
October 20, 2021: Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) announces the strengthening of requirements for domestic passengers starting from October 21, according to the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine (CMU) of October 11, 2021. The relevant resolution provides for the strengthening of epidemiological requirements for passengers of interregional transport connections at "yellow", "orange" or "red" levels of epidemic danger in the regions.
Thus, starting from October 21, 2021, all passengers of domestic regional flights must present one of the following documents before departure:
- Negative result of PCR test, or rapid test for coronavirus antigen SARS-CoV-2, made not earlier than 72 hours before departure;
- Document confirming receipt of a full course of vaccination;
- Document confirming receipt of one dose of two-dose vaccine;
- International, domestic certificate or foreign certificate confirming vaccination against COVID-19 with one dose of two-dose vaccine (yellow certificates) or one dose of single-dose vaccine or two doses of two-dose vaccine (green certificates), which are included in the WHO list for use.
It should be noted that the established rules also apply to passengers who plan to transfer at Boryspil International Airport. The airline reminds that in the absence of one of the above documents, the passenger has the opportunity to get a rapid test to determine the SARS-CoV-2 antigen directly at the airport.
When planning a test at the airport, it is important for passengers to provide additional time for testing, given that it is usually necessary to arrive at the airport before departure at least 2 hours before the departure of the flight.
The airline reminds that it currently operates only one domestic flight on the route Kyiv (KBP) - Odesa (ODS) - Kyiv (KBP) and flights to a number of other regions together with partners.
UIA strongly advises to closely monitor the updating of rules and epidemiological restrictions of a destination country.
