Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) is adding three Gatwick to Kiev services to its flight roster, it has been announced.

Due to commence on Wednesday June 18th, the extra flights mean there are now ten opportunities every week to fly to the Ukrainian capital.

A Boeing 737 aircraft featuring economy and business class cabins will be used, with return ticket prices starting from £149.

Peter Sherman, UIA sales manager for UK & Ireland, said: "Demand for this route has shot up by 36 per cent in the last year.

"The city is becoming a popular choice for short breaks with a unique cultural offering and exciting new hotels at value for money prices."

UIA, which operates 300 scheduled flights every week, claims that passenger traffic is growing steadily by over 25 per cent each year.
