The Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has partnered with national carrier Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) to activate direct commercial flights between Kyiv and Ras Al Khaimah starting June 25, 2021.

The airline will operate twice weekly flights, on Mondays and Thursdays, from Ukraine’s Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv to Ras Al Khaimah International Airport, with the frequency of these flights expected to subsequently increase. UIA will become the first airline from Ukraine to fly into Ras Al Khaimah.

Travellers will also receive complimentary return PCR testing – a service that Ras Al Khaimah is extending to all international visitors.

“Our relationship with UIA is a particularly special one as it is not only the second commercial airline to fly into our emirate but it also marks the first airline from Ukraine and its national carrier. It marks a key step in the recovery of international tourism and aligns with our wider strategy to investigate new routes across core, secondary and emerging markets and to diversify our portfolio with both charter and commercial flights,” said Raki Phillips, CEO of RAKTDA.

Evhen Dykhne, CEO at UIA, added: “We are already looking into increasing the frequency of flights, given the high levels of interest we anticipate, especially over the summer months.”
