Airports & Airlines

Ukraine's international airports:

Boryspil International Airport Most international flights use Kyiv's main airport, 30km southeast of the city centre.

Danylo Halytskyi International Airport The fastest-growing airport in the country, Lviv's airport handles a few domestic flights plus services to some European destinations and holiday flights to the sun.

Odesa International Airport Ukraine's third airport handles a few domestic services plus flights to a handful of big European cities.

Ukraine's main international operator is Ukraine International Airlines (UIA; www.flyuia.com). It's essentially a no-frills, low-cost airline that flies to all major destinations in Europe and beyond from major Ukrainian airports. It's always worth checking its ratings against those of your country's national carrier. UIA is the only Ukrainian airline to fly direct to the US.

All flights to Russia have been suspended in the wake of the conflict; connect with Moscow via Minsk or Riga.
