Ukraine International Airlines has suspended most operations until at least April 3, 2020.
The airline issued this statement:
Exceptional circumstances caused by the spread of Covid-19 strongly affect aviation. The airlines must quickly react to and strictly comply with decisions and regulations of the authorities of their origin and destination countries that are imposed at a very short notice.
Due to numerous restrictions, like any other international carrier, Ukraine International is forced to adjust its flight schedule. Meantime, the airline will make every effort to help passengers reach their homes and resume operations as usual as soon as the restrictions are lifted (on April 3, 2020, – to be confirmed).
In the coming days, we will operate as much as possible according to our schedule. Most flights will be operated in full economy cabin configuration to increase the aircraft capacity.
If a country bans Ukrainains from entry, but flights are allowed, we will do our utmost to organize their departure to Ukraine.
Entry and exit restrictions may be imposed and lifted within short timeframe. Therefore, we strongly advise everyone to inform themselves about the situation in the IATA Travel Centre.
Recently, the number of reticketing inquiries has increased exponentially. Our staff works 24/7 to process every request, find the best solution to each individual case, and provide feedback to every passenger ASAP.
We apologize if you failed to quickly reach us. Our communication channels are overloaded over the period of force-majeure.
First off, we aim at helping passengers who planned to or, responding to restriction measures, will fly with Ukraine International within the next 48 (72) hours.
