Ukraine International Airlines-UIA (Kiev) on June 3 launched nonstop scheduled flights connecting the capitals of the Ukraine and Iran – Kiev and Tehran. Flights connecting Kiev and Tehran will be operated three times a week: outbound – on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; inbound – on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

All flights will be operated on Boeing 737 aircraft in two-class cabin configuration – Business and Economy.

In other news, due to on-going turmoil in the Ukraine, especially in the eastern Russian-speaking areas, the flag carrier will cut its capacity and will reduce its fleet by 25 percent according to CAPA.
