Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) will double the frequency of its flights on the Kyiv-Chernivtsi route from 14 April, the avianews.com publication reports, citing the press service of the airline.
The airline will operate additional flights based on a mixed timetable: departures from Kyiv at 14:30 on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays; departures from Chernivtsi at 16:45; departures from Kyiv at 10:15 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; departures from Chernivtsi at 12:30.
According to the airline’s press service, Embraer E145 aircraft is currently used for these flights. The airline wet-leases this type of aircraft from the Dniproavia airline because the Chernivtsi airport is not yet allowed to receive aircraft with low-mounted engines.
Ukraine International Airlines’ spokesperson Yevhenia Satska recently told avianews.com that the airline intended to start using Embraer 190 and Boeing 737 aircraft after completion of all the relevant work and inspections at the Chernivtsi airport.
The Chernivtsi airport’s spokesperson Maksym Korovets told the publication that all the reconstruction works on the airport’s runway have been completed and that the airport is currently waiting for the State Aviation Service to issue documents permitting it to receive airplanes with low-mounted engines, including Embraer 190 and Boeing 737 aircraft.
