Ukraine International expands its fleet and route structure

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) (Kiev) is expanding its fleet and route structure. In June the flag carrier leased two additional Boeing 737-800s (UR-PSG and UR-PSH). The fleet is now composed of 28 Boeing aircraft and two leased Embraer ERJ 190s.

As a result, the airline is adding new routes. On June 29, a weekly Lvov-Rome route was launched. This was followed by a new route linking Kiev with Sochi, Russia. The new route will operate three days a week. The 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi.

The Sochi route was followed by a new route from Simferopol to Tel Aviv, Israel which started on July 4. The Israeli route will operate two days a week.

Finally a new weekly route was started between Simferopol and Yerevan, Armenia.
