Ukraine was established in 1991, it covers an area of 603,700 sq km, its population is 53 million, its capital city is Kiev, and its official language is Ukrainian.
Kharkiv Airlines (KHK) was founded in 1998 and operated flights until 2001. Then due to difficult economic times and lack of adequate funding the airline stopped operating until it resumed after 10 years.
July 2012: New Systems (AM) Company became the new owner of Kharkiv Airlines (KHK).
May 2013: Kharkiv Airlines (KHK)'s new legal owner became the Azov-Black Sea Investment Company.
Introduced a medium-haul 737-800NG and a long-haul 767-300 airplane.
June 2013: Received its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and License of the State Aviation Administration for providing services of air passenger transportation, which showed compliance with all standards, including the carrier’s safety standards for transportation and ground handling.
The new company primarily intended to increase passenger traffic at Kharkiv Osnova International Airport (HRK) and closely work with tour operators to offer passengers in the eastern region opportunities to travel to popular resort areas.
On June 6th, the renewed Kharkiv Airlines (KHK) made its first flight on the 737-800 from Kharkiv to Antalya, Turkey.
November 2013: From November 25th, direct flights to Nha Trang, Vietnam and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic were introduced from Boryspil International airport in cooperation with tour operator Pegas Touristik.

Kharkiv Airlines (KHK) plans to develop the passenger traffic in the neighboring regions.
May 2014: Kharkiv Airlines (KHK) is continuing to operate using only a single 737-800. (KHK)'s only wide body jet, a 767-300, is now in storage at Istanbul Atatürk having been withdrawn from service at the end of March. The airplane had been used on flights to Goa, India, Thailand, and the Dominican Republic.
With Ukraine currently in the midst of economic and social turmoil, the country's aviation industry has suffered enormously with various foreign and local carriers (among them Wizz Air Ukraine ((IATA) Code: WU, Kiev Zhulyany) (WAU), Atlasjet UA ((IATA) Code: UH, based at Lvov), UTair-Ukraine ((IATA) Code: QU, based at Lugansk), and YanAir ((IATA) Code: YE, based at Kiev Zhulyany) choosing to either scale down or wind up their respective operations.
As it stands, Kharkiv Airlines (KHK) continues to operate charter flights to Antalya, Turkey, Sharm el Sheikh, and Hurghada in Egypt, and Monastir in Tunisia.
April 2015: Kharkiv Airlines ((IATA) Code: KW, based at Kharkov) (KHK) has temporarily suspended operations following the end of the 2014/2015 winter season. (KHK)'s press service told Ukraine's "Liga" news agency that it is seeking to resume operations this summer season with charter flights to "popular tourist destinations" for and on behalf of its parent, tour operator, Pegas Touristik.
According to the report, Kharkiv's only airplane, 737-800 (32841, UR-CLS) is now in Turkey undergoing maintenance, effectively leaving (KHK) with no operational airplanes at present.
At its peak, Kharkiv Airlines had operated a fleet of two B737-800s and a B767-300(ER) on flights from Kharkov, Donetsk and Kiev Borispol to leisure destinations in Greece, Egypt, Tunisia, India, Vietnam, Thailand and the Dominican Republic. However, with the onset of the crisis in the east of Ukraine and the associated impact on the country's economy, the carrier has had to scale back operations dramatically.
Last week, Wizz Air (W6, Budapest) announced it would close its Wizz Air Ukraine (WU, Kiev Zhulyany) subsidiary and replace it with a new Kiev base of the Hungarian parent.
