UIA introduces baggage-free allowance fares to America
February 9, 2022: Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) expands opportunities for direct flights from Kyiv to New York and Toronto. Thus, UIA has introduced the baggage-free allowance on these flights, which will provide more opportunities when planning a transatlantic point-to-point trip by direct flights. At the same time, passengers of transit routes will be offered only Economy Standard and Premium families, as well as Business Saver and Business Flex, which include luggage transportation.
Currently, the Economy Lite baggage-free allowance fares on international and domestic UIA flights provide for the possibility of carrying only one piece of hand luggage up to 7 kilograms. However, the airline is expanding the Economy Lite fare for long-haul flights to New York and Toronto, allowing passengers who choose a fare without luggage to carry basic hand luggage up to 7 kilograms and a second bag up to 5 kg.
However, in addition to baggage-free allowance fares on point-to-point flights to Toronto and New York, passengers can still use traditional baggage fares.
You can read more about the rules of carriage of hand&checked baggage on the official website of the airline.
We remind you that passengers can already buy tickets for direct scheduled flights to New York (JFK) and Toronto (YYZ), which will start in June this year. Flights on these routes will be launched on Boeing 777-200ER long-haul aircraft in a three-class cabin layout: business, economy-premium, and economy.
In addition, the airline currently offers passengers of all own flights variations in baggage discounts depending on the selected fare, booking no later than 24 hours before departure. In particular, the Economy Standard fares provide a discount of up to 50%. Learn more about the available discount range by the link.
You can buy tickets and check the flight schedule on the official website of the carrier.
UIA reminds about the possibility of changing the dates of travel on UIA flights free of charge, if the original fare is available. In addition, at the check-in desk at the airport, passengers have the opportunity to upgrade to a premium economy or business classes. UIA passengers also have the opportunity to use the online service "Manage My Booking", choose convenient seats in the economy class cabin in advance, and order other additional services.
Ukraine International Airlines applies safety standards and procedures in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Organization, the International Air Transport Organization, the European Aviation Safety Agency, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control, and the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and the State Aviation Service of Ukraine.
UIA strongly advises to closely monitor the update of rules and epidemiological restrictions of a destination country.
