Ukraine International Airlines takes over Aerosvit’s flights to Astana
- Ukraine International Airlines resumed services from Kiev to Kazakhstan’s capital on 16 January. The airline was quick to re-launch the flights from Kiev Boryspil (KBP) to Astana (TSE), after its main competitor Aerosvit withdrew daily services between the capitals two days earlier. Operating with 112-seat 737-500 equipment, the Ukrainian airline will offer five-weekly frequencies, boosting them to daily departures from April 2013. The airline now holds monopoly conditions serving the two largest Kazakhstan’s cities, including the country’s main economic hub Almaty.
