Nonstop Flights Between Ukraine and the USA Should Soon Be Possible
Good news for those looking to check out Ukraine, as apparently the country has gotten its act together when it comes to airline safety. Apparently Uncle Sam—and his buddies in the government—weren’t exactly cool with Ukraine and their airline safety record. However, things have recently changed, as the Federal Aviation Administration recently gave the go ahead for airlines from Ukraine to fly all the way over to the United States.
The way it works is that the government doesn’t really look at specific carriers or airlines, but they do look at other countries and the way they handle air travel. They want to see that foreign airline authorities are up to snuff, and they judge them based on guidelines established through the International Civil Aviation Organization. It now seems like things must be in order, and we're good to go.
We have to assume that this can only be good news for Ukraine International Airlines. Unfortunately they don’t have any specific new routes news for us to share regarding flights to and from the United States. The internet makes it sound like they’ve got some Boeing 777-200LRs on order, so we can only hope that nonstop flights between Kiev and the nifty fifty will be announced sooner than later.
