SkyUp Airlines becomes the first operator of Split Scimitar® Winglets in Ukraine

Aviation Partners Boeing (APB) announced today that Ukraine’s SkyUp Airlines has become the first operator in Ukraine of its latest Split Scimitar Winglet technology.

Installations have now been completed on two Boeing Next-Generation 737-700s and six 737-800s. Aviation Partners’ latest Winglet design, the Split Scimitar Winglet, retrofits the existing Blended Winglets with new aerodynamic Scimitar tips while adding a large ventral strake, further increasing airplane efficiency.

Based in Kiev, SkyUp is a Ukrainian carrier registered as SkyUp LLC. The airline was introduced as a new national airline in 2017.


The airline operates as a charter and scheduled carrier and commenced operations on 21-May-2018 using Boeing 737NG aircraft on domestic and international services.
