Ukraine’s State Aviation Service has received information from the UIA airline that the frequencies of flights to Tehran and Amman have not been approved. The State Aviation Service is preparing the relevant statement to the aviation authorities of Iran and Jordan, in which it will demand that they act exclusively within the framework of the intergovernmental agreements that were reached, the regulator said.
On 8 August, the CFTS portal reported that the UIA had canceled a number of flights to Iran and Jordan. The reason for the cancelations was refusal by local aviation authorities to grant the Ukrainian airline permission to fly to these countries.
As reported, Kyiv-Tehran flights by UIA (seven flights a week) and UM Air (one flight per week) and Tehran-Kyiv flights by the Mahan Air airline (two flights per week) have been approved for the 2016 summer timetable. The approved timetable for flights to Jordan is as follows: Kyiv-Amman flights by UIA (seven flights per week) and Kyiv-Amman flights (two flights per week) and Kharkiv-Amman flights by UM Air (one flight per week).
