Ukraine International Airlines has declared its intentions to start flying to the Norwegian capital of Oslo. Operating Embraer 190 aircraft, the carrier will link the Norwegian city with its Kyiv–Boryspil hub three times a week. Service on the latest route is set to start in June, with UIA being the first Ukrainian airline to have a presence on this passage.
Ukraine International Airlines
A report discharged by Ukraine International Airlines earlier this week announced the carrier’s plans to extend a new route from its base at Kyiv Boryspil International Airport. UIA plans to add Oslo Gardermoen Airport to its extensive European network, and it is eyeing June 1st as a launch date for flights between the Ukrainian and Norwegian capitals.
Ukraine International Airlines initially intends to serve this latest route on a thrice-weekly basis, with flights leaving on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. The outbound services will leave Kyiv at 08:25, and touch down in Oslo at 10:15 local time. The recovery travel will be a late afternoon affair, leaving Norway at 16:00, and landing in Ukraine at 17:50.
Accounting for time differences, this gives a flight time of two hours and 50 minutes in each direction. UIA’s report proudly details the fact that it “will be the first and presently the only airline in Ukraine to begin flights on this route.” In terms of non-Ukrainian carriers, SAS links Oslo and Kyiv every Tuesday with Airbus A320/A320neo aircraft.
People traveling from Oslo to Kyiv
A key selling point of this new route, as announced by UIA, is the wealth of connection possibilities present at its Kyiv–Boryspil hub. This will mean that the route will be suitably not just for people traveling from Oslo to Kyiv, but also for those looking to increase their journeys beyond the Ukrainian capital. The airline explains that:
- “Thanks to the convenient schedule, passengers from Norway will be capable to operate the docking at Boryspil International Airport, and then resume their journey on international flights to Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Tbilisi, Cairo, Chisinau, Baku, Yerevan, Tenerife, Rome, Athens, Larnaca, Split, and Budapest.”
“In addition, the convenient connection permits you to restart your journey through Ukraine to its most well-known regional cities: Odesa, Kharkiv, Dnipro, [and] Kherson.”
