Wednesday, 06 June Ukraine International Airlines launched non-stop scheduled flights between Kiev and Toronto. This brings the number of UIA long haul destinations to six: Bangkok, Beijing, Colombo, Delhi, New York and Toronto.

Flights are operated three times a week – on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays – by wide body Boeing 767-300ER aircraft with three-class cabin configuration: Business Class, Premium Economy Class and Economy Class.

Flight duration from Toronto to Kiev is 9 hours 50 minutes and on the way back – 10 hours 15 minutes. UIA offers one-way economy class tickets (all taxes and surcharges included) for Toronto – Kiev flights at the price from 455 USD**.

“Toronto is a new logical point on UIA’s route map in North America where one of the largest Ukrainian diasporas reside which is very interested in convenient air connectivity with their historical homeland. Moreover, passengers from the multinational Greater Toronto Area will get opportunities to reach other points from Ukraine International’s network with a connection at Boryspil International Airport. This will help to continue developing Kiev as a transfer hub”, - Evgeniya Satska, UIA Communications Director says.

The schedule has been timed to provide excellent two-way connections in Toronto from all major cities in Canada and from Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle and Mexico City. Likewise in Kiev, there are convenient connections to/from domestic Ukraine, Turkey, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Israel, UAE and Iran.
