Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “We are delighted to launch direct service to Kyiv, a much-anticipated addition to our global network. This new route will connect businesses in Kyiv and across Ukraine to new business partners from around the globe, while also appealing to leisure travellers, offering them the opportunity to experience this charming city. Kyiv is just one of several new European destinations launched by Qatar Airways this summer, including Prague and Skopje, opening new gateways across Eastern Europe and linking these cities to our extensive global network of more than 150 destinations.”

The new daily flights to Kyiv will provide over 10 tonnes of belly capacity each week, supporting the growing food product, pharmaceutical and civil aircraft industries in Ukraine. The belly service is also complemented with a local trucking network to and from Kyiv airport.

Chief Executive Officer of Kyiv Boryspil International Airport, Mr. Pavlo Riabikin, said: “We are pleased to welcome the Qatar Airways inaugural flight here to Boryspil. We hope that this will mark the beginning of a long-term mutually beneficial partnership. Developing cooperation with the best airline companies in the world is a matter of fundamental importance for us. Yesterday’s arrival heralds a further step in qualitative development of the main airport of Ukraine.”

Kyiv, one of Eastern Europe’s undiscovered cultural jewels, is filled with striking architecture and many art galleries and museums. The city is both historic and modern at the same time, and is quickly becoming a popular must-visit destination for travellers from around the globe.

Thanks to a new visa waiver scheme, Ukrainians can obtain a 30-day visa on arrival in Doha.
