April 2008: The Ukraine's government is considering selling its stakes in the country's major carriers, Aerosvit (UKA) and Ukraine International (UKR). The state owns 22.4% of (UKA) and 61.6% of (UKR). The two carriers account for more than >50% of the country's air traffic.
July 2008: Hungary's Wizz Air (WZZ) has launched a wholly-owned subsidiary in the Ukraine with one A320 operating four domestic routes. The carrier aims to quickly expand with plans to begin international services in September, despite record high fuel prices and infrastructure bottlenecks which the other country's carriers say make the Low Cost Carrier (LCC) model unsustainable in the Ukraine.
The bottlenecks have not stopped Ukarine's two main carriers AerSvit (UKA) and Ukraine International Airlines (UKR) from quickly expanding and turning healthy profits. Last year, the Ukrainian market grew +23% to 9 million passengers. (UKR)s traffic grew +42% (RPK)s to 1.5 million, while AeroSvit (UKA) grew +29% (RPK)s to 2 million.
Both carriers have ambitious growth plans. (UKR) will add its 16th 737 classic in October and plans to order 30 to 36 new narrow bodies by year end. (UKA) which now operates about 20 airplanes and last year ordered 7 737-800s, is now looking to buy 10 large regional jets.

December 2008: World nations currently rated Category 2 by the USA (FAA) under the agency's International Aviation Safety Assessment (IASA) program are: Bangladesh, Belize, Ivory Coast, Croatia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Gambia, Ghana, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Israel, Kiribati, Montenegro, Nauru, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Philippines, Serbia, Swaziland, Ukraine, Uruguay and Zimbabwe. The (FAA) rating prevents nation's airlines being allowed to fly into the USA. They have the option to fly to the USA with an airline who is approved under Category 1.
The (FAA) states that a Category 2 rating "may involve a country lacking laws or regulations necessary to oversee air carriers in accordance with international standards, or that its civil aviation authority does not meet international standards in one or more areas such as technical expertise, trained personnel, record keeping, or inspection procedures."

October 2009: Tough economic times in the Ukraine mean Aerosvit (UKA) won’t fly to Delhi, Toronto, Cairo, Almaty, Hamburg, and Stockholm this winter. It will, however, increase capacity to Dubai, Bangkok, and Warsaw. (UKA) is also planning to add new code share partners, including airBaltic (BAU) and Aeroflot (ARO).

(UKA) has entered into a code share agreement with Air Baltic (BAU) for the Kiev Borispol - Riga route operated by (BAU) and connections via Riga.
June 2010: (IATA) (ITA) said that it formalized a strategic partnership with the Ukraine to cooperate in a number of areas, including safety and security. Director General & CEO, Giovanni Bisignani and Ukraine Deputy Transport Minister & Chairman State Aviation Administration, Anatolii Kolisnyk signed a Memorandum of Intention in Kiev, where Bisignani also met with officials from Ukraine International Airlines (UKR) and Aerosvit Airlines (UKA). The organization will share ideas and best practices on safety, security, technology, airport infrastructure, air navigation, ground handling and training.
"(IATA)'s global standards and technical expertise can contribute significantly to the development of safe, efficient and environmentally responsible aviation in Ukraine," Bisignani said. He noted that Ukraine "has made progress to improve safety but many challenges remain - - more needs to be done. We must accelerate the work to bring safety oversight in line with the standards of (ICAO)." The country has a USA (FAA) Category 2 safety rating. He added that the nation's "airport and air traffic control (ATC) rates remain high and are not cost-based. Ukraine's system is one of the most expensive in Europe and remains one of the least productive. This undermines the competitiveness of Ukraine. We need immediate reform. "He said the agreement gives "hope that the government can quickly address the challenges of safety and infrastructure."
August 2010: Aerosvit Airlines (UKA), Dniproavia (UDN), and Donbassaero (UDC) are planning to intensify their cooperation by setting up a joint management company and operating most services under the Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) code.
Israeli media reports stated that El Al (ELA) has been unable to reach a membership agreement with any of the three global alliances and is considering launching its own alliance. The alliance would include airlines that are not members of Oneworld (ONW), Star Alliance (SAL) or SkyTeam (STM) alliances. According to the reports, El Al (ELA) hopes to include three Eastern European airlines as initial partners and believes the alliance could eventually reach 20 members. The alliance would be known as "Western-Eastern." Aerosvit (UKA), Armavia (ARZ) and UTair (TYU) have signed a letter of intent (LOI) with El Al Israel Airlines (ELA) with the aim to launch a fourth worldwide alliance of smaller carriers tentatively called "WE" which stands for Western-Eastern. The alliance is scheduled to be operational by the end of 2011.
Aerosvit (UKA) has started code sharing on twice weekly, Wind Rose (WRC) services from Kiev Borispol to Tashkent.
October 2010: EL Al Israel Airlines (ELA) is in discussions with potential partners about forming an alliance initially centered on Eastern Europe and the Middle East. (ELA) has been talking to Russian carrier UTAir (TYU), Ukraine's Aerosvit (UKA) and Donbassaaero (UDC), and Armavia (ARZ) of Armenia about cooperation deals that would start with code sharing, according to (ELA) Alliance Manager, Stanley Morais.
The alliance (preliminarly dubbed (WE) for "West-East" — is still in the “development stage,” says VP Commercial, Eli Cohen. But if (ELA) goes ahead with the plans, the group should later also include carriers in Asia and North America. (ELA) has recently shown interest in joining one of the three global alliances, but Morais says it was given the cold shoulder. He believes that the SkyTeam (STM), Oneworld (ONW) and Star (SAL) alliances are afraid their Arab customer base might choose the competition in the future if one of them accepted an Israeli airline. Cohen says (WE) could therefore be an “alliance of the miserables,” a group of carriers that is unwanted by the three global alliances for one reason or another. The focus on Eastern European carriers is based on the area's strong ties with Israel — more than >1 million Israelis stem from that part of Europe originally. Of the carriers in the potential group, only Aerosvit (UKA) operates long-haul — a single flight from Kiev to New York. Thus El Al (ELA) believes there is ample feed for its significant long-haul operation, which includes Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, Johannesburg, Mumbai, and Beijing. Today, (ELA) has almost no connecting traffic in Tel Aviv mainly because of the unstable political situation and the severe security measures upheld at the airport. Passengers have to show up for flights at least three hours in advance and are subject to rigorous inspections and interviews. Cohen hopes that some of those measures could be relaxed if passengers fly in on other airlines and connect without leaving the airport. “We want to make Tel Aviv into a hub, but we are facing high hurdles,” he says.
February 2011: 767-33AER (25533, UR-AAJ), ex-(V8-RBJ) delivery.
June 2011: Baltic Ground Services signed an agreement with AeroSvit (UKA) to provide (UKA) with airplane and passenger ground handling services in Warsaw.

October 2011: Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) is a major Ukrainian carrier operating scheduled, jet airplane service from Kiev Borispol International Airport (KBP) to more than >20 destinations in Bulgaria, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Israel, Russia, Turkey, and other countries. Long haul flights serve Canada, China and the USA. (UKA) has a comprehensive domestic network serving 10 cities. It also operates some international charter flights.

November 2011: (LOT) Polish Airlines has wet-leased an additional long-haul 767-300ER airplane from AeroSvit Airlines (UKA), until January 15. The 767 will fly (LOT)’s routes to Toronto and Hanoi. The first flight, from Warsaw to Toronto, launched November 13. The 767 is configured with 23C business and 182Y economy-class seats.
December 2011: Russia and Ukraine will remove restrictions for the number of carriers and number of flights on the Moscow (DME) - Odessa (ODS) route, effective with the 2012 summer schedule. Currently, only two designated carriers (Transaero (TRX) and AeroSvit (UKA)) are allowed to fly between these cities. Aeroflot (ARO) is a (UKA) marketing partner on this route.
The new rules will weaken (TRX)’s position on the (DME) - (ODS) route as more carriers are allowed to fly to (ODS), the third biggest city in Ukraine. There is a high demand for (ODS) service but the limited number of carriers keeps fares high.
The restrictions imposed by bilateral agreements between Russia and other countries have been widely criticized by most Russian carriers, which claim free access of international routes is restricted, as (ARO) and (TRX) dominate most routes.
(TRX) Deputy CEO, Dmitry Stolyarov said (TRX) welcomes further liberalization on international routes but it is not clear why Russian authorities began with the (DME) - (ODS) route instead of, for example, (DME) - Paris, where only SkyTeam (STM) Alliance members (ARO) and AirFrance (AFA) are allowed to fly.
(TRX) tried to get approval for charter flights from (DME) to Rome and Milan Malpensa but Russian aviation authorities withdrew permission.
January 2012: Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) has announced new services from its growing Kiev Borispol hub:

Aerosvit (UKA) has given up its routes from Odessa to Milan Malpensa. It has not launched its previously announced Kiev Borispol - Hong Kong service. (UKA) has reached a code share agreement with Turkish Airlines (THY) covering all routes served by both carriers between Istanbul Atatürk and Ukraine.
Kiev’s main airport served more than >8 million passengers in 2011,
+20% more than in 2010. The airport, which handles about 70% of
all traffic to and from the Ukraine, welcomed a number of new
airlines last year including FlyDubai (FDB), Air Arabia (ABZ) and Cimber Sterling (STR), which is now owned by Ukrainian investors. At the same time, the country’s two largest airlines, Aerosvit (UKA)
and Ukraine International (UKR) have grown their Kiev capacity
by double digits, as have Russian airlines like Aeroflot (ARO), S7 (SBR) and Transaero (TRX). Turkish Airlines (THY), Lufthansa (DLH) and AirFrance (AFA) have grown in Kiev as well. The growth figures for the airport would be higher still had Wizz Air (WZZ) not moved its Kiev operations to an alternative airport in March. Ukraine’s economy grew a healthy +5% in 2011, according to latest World Bank
(UKA) has added an ex-British Airways (BAB) 737-500 to its fleet. It has also wet-leased an ATR72-202 (496, OY-RTF) from sister carrier, Cimber Sterling (STR) for its Kiev Borispol - Vilnius route.
March 2012: Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) received its first 737-800 (38119, UR-AAN) of 7/7 orders (SEE - - "UKA-737-800 - 2012-03"). It will be used for flights between Kiev and Astana, London Gatwick, Tbilisi, and Tel Aviv.
(UKA)'s main base is at Kyiv-Boryspil Airport (KBP) and serves 80 international routes to 34 countries, and provides passenger services to the major regional centers of Ukraine.
(UKA) is a member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) since 1996 and the Association of European Airlines (AEA) since 2008. The airline was among the first carriers in Eastern Europe that satisfied (IATA) Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) requirements and successfully confirms every second year its safety standards through independent (IOSA) audits, including the last one in 2011.
April 2012: Wind Rose Aviation (WRC) will return its two EMB-195s (0169, UR-WRF; 0157, UR-WRG) to the lessors within the next two months. Both airplanes are currently based at Kiev Borispol airport (KBP) and operate on behalf of its partner Aerosvit Airlines (UKA). As Dniproavia (UDN) will start taking delivery of new EMB-190s that will operate on Aerosvit (UKA) routes, the airplanes will no longer be required.
May 2012: Aerosvit (UKA) starts services from Kiev Borispol to Rostov and Tyumen in Russia. (UKA) launched a new route from Kiev Boryspil to Ekaterinburg.
June 2012: Dniproavia (UDN) has finally taken delivery of its first two EMB-190s (0494, UR-DSA; 0495, UR-DSB). (UDN) has a total of ten EMB-190s on order and will mainly operate them on behalf of its partner, Aerosvit Airlines (UKA).
Embraer (EMB) has delivered the first two EMB-190 jets to the Ukrainian Aviation Group Alliance (UAG), in a ceremony at (EMB)’s headquarters in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The airplane will be operated by Dniproavia (UDN), on behalf of AeroSvit (UKA), both of which are members of the (UAG), mainly serving the airline’s international regional network from its Kiev Boryspil airport (KBP) hub. Three other EMB-Jets are scheduled for delivery by the end of the year.
(UAG) selected the EMB-190 as part of the (UAG) alliance’s fleet replacement for older, narrow body jets, as it looks to right-size some routes and also develop its international regional network with new routes, and provide increased frequencies on others. The EMB-190 will be configured in a dual-class layout with comfortable Elite seats.
“The EMB-190 perfectly fits AeroSvit (UKA)’s strategy of growing with the right capacity to access new markets and help it build a stronger and more competitive network,” said Paulo Cesar Silva, Embraer (EMB) President, Commercial Aviation. “Kiev is geographically well-positioned and the EMB-190 will provide them access to a wide range of cities and introduce high quality service to their customers.”
Currently, up to 20 ERJ-145s jets are in Dniproavia (UDN)’s fleet in Ukraine. The Kiev-based charter carrier and wet-lease (ACMI)-provider, Windrose Aviation (WRC), also has one EMB-195, which is wet-leased to (UAG) member carriers. Following delivery to (UAG) of all five new EMB-190s, the Ukraine will be home to over >25 Embraer commercial airplanes.
Gregory Gurtovoy, AeroSvit (UKA) Chairman, highlighted the mission of the new EMB-190: “The airplane will be operated by Dniproavia (UDN), on behalf of AeroSvit (UKA), and will serve to enhance our overall product offering and improve our operational efficiency. This is very important, in light of the soon-expected "Open Skies" agreement between the European Union (EU) and Ukraine. The EMB-190s will also fly to destinations in the (CIS) and the Middle East, providing excellent passenger comfort, transit baggage capacity and range that will enable us to compete with both legacy and low-cost carriers (LCC)s. With our good experience in the EMB-195 commercial use for (UAG), I’m confident that the brand-new EMB-190s will deliver even more exceptional performance.”
Since the EMB-Jets entered revenue service, in 2004, Embraer (EMB) has delivered nearly 850 of them to more than >60 airlines from 42 countries around the world. The versatile 70 to 120-seat, four-airplane family is flying with (LCC)s, on regional services and with mainline carriers. The EMB-Jets order book registered 1,063 firm orders as of March 31, 2012.
July 2012: AeroSvit (UKA) launched its fourth route to Azerbaijan’s capital Baku (GYD) on 17 July. Complementing its flights from Kiev, Odessa and Donetsk, (UKA) now flies seasonally from Lviv (LWO) in western Ukraine. Flights operate once a week with A320 equipment until 11 September, competing with Azerbaijan Airlines (AHY)’s also weekly operations.
Embraer (EMB) delivered two EMB-190 airplanes to the Ukrainian Group Alliance, to be operated by Dniproavia (UDN) on behalf of AeroSvit (UKA) to mainly serve the carrier’s international regional network from its Kiev Boryspil hub. Three additional EMB-Jets are scheduled for delivery by the end of the year.
Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) currently uses ATR72-200 (212, LY-MCA) wet-leased from (DOT) - Danu oro transportas ((IATA) Code: R6, based at Vilnius International airport (VNO)) on its twice daily services from Kiev Borispol (KBP) to Vilnius International (VNO) and one of its three daily flights to Lvov Snilow (LWO) airport. From October 28, Aerosvit (UKA) plans to increase the frequency on the Vilnius route to three times daily with this ATR72 then being dedicated to this route.
October 2012: AeroSvit (UKA) and Ukraine International Airlines (UKR) are supporting Kiev Boryspil International’s (KBP) transformation plan into a competitive international hub. (KBP) handles about 8 million passengers annually.
(UKR) and (UKA) combined, have nearly 70% of (KBP)’s passenger traffic. The two carriers are interested in further joint development and growth of transit potential. The Ukraine government will engage a private company to assist with the plan.
A J Walter Aviation (AJW) signed power by the hour agreements with four customers; Air Moldova (MOL) (A320s), Cosmo Airlines (COS) (A320s), BH Air (BGH) (Airbus airplanes) and Aerosvit Airlines (UKA) (737CL/NGs).
737-5Q8 (26324) returned to (ilf) and leased to new Ukrainian operator Air Onix (ONX).
December 2012: AeroSvit Airlines (UKA) and Moscow Sheremetyevo International Airport have been in a clash over (UKA)’s debt of RUB 95 million/$3 million. The airport had given (UKA) until December 10 to pay off the debt or else it would ban (UKA). (UKA) reportedly made a partial payment and said it will pay the rest before the December 10 deadline.
(UKA)’s debt for Russia’s air traffic control (ATC) system has reportedly reached $1 million.
Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, said it sent a warning to Ukrainian authorities November 20 saying it would restrict (UKA)’s scheduled and charter flights from November 27, but the date was postponed to December 10.
In March, Boryspil International Airport in Kiev suspended (UKA) flights until (UKA) could resolve its debt issues.
On December 10th, Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport banned Ukrainian AeroSvit Airlines (UKA) due to the carrier’s debt dispute.
(UKA) reportedly made a partial payment and said in a statement it would pay the rest before the deadline. Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport said (UKA)’s total debt (including arrears for fuel and security supply) had reached RUB165.5 million.
The airport purchased tickets on other airlines for AeroSvit (UKA) passengers who had to fly December 11.
(UKA) said it is ready to make the next payment according to the previously agreed-upon schedule. (UKA) is negotiating with Sheremetyevo about resuming flights from Kiev and Dnepropetrovsk to Moscow.
January 2013: Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport has banned AeroSvit Airlines (UKA) due to a debt dispute with (UKA). The airport warned (UKA) it would ban its flights if the RUB95 million/$3 million debt was not paid in full by December 10. (UKA) reportedly made a partial payment. Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport said (UKA)’s total debt (including arrears for fuel and security supply) had reached RUB165.5 million.
AeroSvit (UKA) has now filed for bankruptcy, but is continuing to operate. “AeroSvit Airlines (UKA) has filed a petition to initiate bankruptcy proceedings for the purpose of commencing reorganization procedure, restoring solvency and ensuring fulfillment of commitments to its creditors in full,” (UKA) said.
The petition was filed December 29, but (UKA) said “as of today, the airline is not bankrupt.” It added that it will fulfill its current contractor commitments. “The airline’s management remains unchanged and keeps functioning, with all procedures assuring normal operational activities, including flight safety assurance, being carried out in full extent,” it said, noting it will now initiate a reorganization to improve efficiency and boost its revenues.
(UKA) has recently run into debt issues with a number of Russian airports, including Kaliningrad, Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport, Rostov-on-Don and St Petersburg.
Later, (UKA) had to cancel or delay several flights after some airports suspended service due to (UKA)’s debt. According to Russian news agency "RIA Novosti," from January 5 - 8, AeroSvit (UKA) aircplanes were delayed at Warsaw, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Tel-Aviv airports. On January 7, Warsaw airport did not authorize (UKA) to operate return flights to Kiev. On January 9, (UKA) was forced to cancel flights from Kiev to Yerevan, from Prague and Yerevan to Kiev and delayed flights from Kiev to Astana, New York, Bangkok, and Tel-Aviv.
AeroSvit (UKA), which insists it does not have any current debt, said the airports misunderstood its petition that initiated bankruptcy proceedings in December. At the end of last year, (UKA) said it will undergo reorganization and “restoring solvency and ensuring fulfillment of commitments to its creditors in full.”
(UKA) accused the airports of unreasonable flight interruptions and said the airport providers require prepayments even if the airline does not have any debts. It is negotiating with airport providers in Warsaw.
Ukraine Prime Minister, Mykola Azarov said, “We can’t afford that private carrier’s problems to do harm for thousands of Ukraine and foreign citizens.”
Later, Russia’s aviation authorities banned (UKA) flights from January 15. Apparently, on January 11, Federal Air Transport Agency, Rosaviatsia, said (UKA)’s debt for state-owned Air Traffic Management Corporation had reached $1.5 million. The agency said the nonpayment could not be reconciled with bankruptcy proceedings, which were initiated by the carrier at the end of December, as they do not match Russia’s legislative procedures.
Russia’s Air Traffic Management Corporation has banned AeroSvit (UKA) from operating flights in the country’s airspace. The ban was effective January 25. Russia’s aviation authorities said (UKA) was ordered to pay $697,000 for November’s air navigation services before January 24 but (UKA) did not meet the deadline.
(UKA), which filed for bankruptcy December 29, had said it would continue to operate, but earlier this month (UKA) began announcing flight bans and delays. In January, Air Traffic Management Corporation said (UKA)’s debt had reached $1.5 million, which has been partially paid.
Late last year, Russian authorities and Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport threatened to cancel AeroSvit (UKA) flights several times because of the debt dispute. In December, Sheremetyevo Airport banned (UKA)’s flights for several days but flights were resumed later.
Ukraine International Airlines (UKR) has taken over some of (UKA)’s flights from Kiev to Prague, Baku, Astana, and Tbilisi.
Donbassaero airline (UDC) has initiated bankruptcy proceedings in a filing to the Donetsk Regional Economic Court. A preliminary hearing will be held on March 27. Donbassaero (UDC), which is part of the Ukrainian Aviation Group that also includes Dniproavia (UDN) and AeroSvit (UKA), has halted flights as the group deals with ongoing financial problems of its airlines.
According to (UDC)’s website, it operates nine A320s and one A321. Ukrainian Aviation Group carriers fly to destinations in the Ukraine, (CIS) republics, the Middle East, North Africa and North America.
Dniproavia (UDN), which is a part of the Ukrainian Aviation Group, has stopped flights and ticket sales, effective January 8. The group also includes AeroSvit (UKA), which filed for bankruptcy at the end of December. Recently, Russia’s aviation authorities said it would ban AeroSvit (UKA) flights from January 15 because of (UKA)’s debt situation.
Russia’s Interfax news agency reported a new company, called Aviadnipro, was registered at the end of December in the Dnepropetrovsk region.
Dniproavia (UDN)’s fleet included 17 Embraer EMB-145s and operated domestic and international flights.
Aerosvit Airlines ((IATA) Code: VV, Kiev Borispol (KBP)) (UKA) has cancelled all of its remaining short-haul flights with the exception of its domestic routes from Kiev Borispol to Dnepropetrovsk (DNK) and Ivano-Frankovsk (IFO) still served by an ERJ-145 of sister carrier Dniproavia ((IATA) Code: Z6, based at Dnepropetrovsk (DNK)) (UDN). It also still offers some long-haul services to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi International (BKK), Beijing Capital (PEK) and New York John F Kennedy International (JFK) with a fleet of three 767-300ERs. Aerosvit (UKA) has therefore now also dropped its short-haul services to Istanbul Atatürk/Yesilköy International (IST), Kaliningrad Khrabrovo (KGD), Larnaca (LCA), Moscow Sheremetyevo International (SVO), Prague Ruzyne (PRG), Sofia International (SOF), St Petersburg Pulkovo (LED), Tashkent Yuzhny (TAS) and Yerevan Zvartnots (EVN) as well as long-haul routes to Goa (GOI) and Ho Chi Minh City Tan Son Nhat International (SGN) from its fast shrinking network.
April 2013: Embraer (EMB) is negotiating with AeroSvit (UKA) owners to deliver three out of five Embraer EMB-190 airplanes ordered by (UKA). In 2012, two EMV-190s painted in AeroSvit (UKA) livery were delivered to (UKA). They were operating for Dniproavia (UDN), a member of Ukrainian Aviation Group, created by AeroSvit (UKA) owners.
At the end of December, AeroSvit (UKA) filed for bankruptcy, but planned to continue operations. However, (UKA) finally ceased short- and medium-haul destinations and then left the long-haul market shortly thereafter.
Part of (UKA)’s fleet, including two EMB-190s, were transferred to Ukraine International Airlines (UKR). Three remaining EMB-190s could also be leased by (UKR) after delivery to AeroSvit (UKA) owners.
