Ukraine International Airlines charters EuroAtlantic planes for winter flights

Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) has announced its partnership with tour operator Compass to offer flights to sunny winter destinations from Boryspil International Airport (KBP) in Kyiv, the country’s capital. In a statement issued on December 8, 2021, Ukraine’s largest airline said that from December 27 it will start flying to the exotic resorts of the Dominican Republic (Punta Cana), Mexico (Cancun) and the Maldives (Male).

Flights under the winter sun will be operated using a EuroAtlantic Airways Boeing 767-300ER. The UIA says the Portuguese-owned aircraft will have a two-class cabin configuration and will be partially crewed by UIA personnel. The UIA advises potential customers to familiarize themselves with Compass Travel by visiting their website at

About Destinations

Punta Cana:

Home to the most picturesque beaches and turquoise seas in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana is a made-in-the-Caribbean resort that caters to sun-seeking vacationers. With over 24,000 rooms available at affordable rates, Punta Cana is a reasonably priced winter sun destination that will appeal to travelers of all ages.


With 12 miles of powdery white sand and warm tropical seas, it’s easy to see why developers decided to turn this part of the Yucatán Peninsula into an international resort. While Cancun may conjure up mental images of college spring break, it’s also abundant in Mayan culture, with the ruins and pyramids of Chichen Itza nearby. Foodies will love Cancun too, not only for its Mexican specialties, but also for its cuisines imported from around the world.

Located southwest of Sri Lanka in the Indian Ocean, the Maldives are a chain of low-lying islands that are home to the most beautiful beaches in the world. Each resort in the Maldives is like being on your own private island, making it difficult to choose where you want to stay. At the top end, you have the world’s best hotel chains for honeymooners looking for a unique vacation, but there’s plenty of choice for budget travelers too.

With year-round warm waters and schools of brightly colored fish, it’s easy to see why the Maldives is popular with divers. The Maldives also offers world-class surfing on the Central and Outer Atolls, which means if you’re into watersports, there’s always something to do.
