Ukraine International Airlines continues to operate flights, sends 5 Boeing 737-800s to Spain due to insurance risk

Ukraine International Airlines issued this statement:

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) will continue to operate flights according to the existing schedule, operating 16 medium-haul aircraft without any changes in the schedule.

The preservation of operational work was made possible by a constructive dialogue between UIA’s business partners, as well as cooperation with the Government of Ukraine. Currently, tickets for flights of UIA and partners are on sale on the official website of the airline.

Due to the foreign policy situation, Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) has received an official notification from insurance companies to terminate the insurance of aircraft for flights in the airspace of Ukraine. In this regard, UIA, at the request of lessors, sends 5 Boeing 737-800 aircraft to Spain while retaining other aircraft in the company’s fleet. In addition, 2 aircraft of the airline are sent for scheduled engine maintenance in Belgrade.

UIA is making efforts and is constantly negotiating with insurance companies, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, the State Aviation Service and hopes for mutual understanding.

The airline will continue to regularly report any possible changes in its operations.
