Twice-weekly flights will begin from 25 June.
Ras Al Khaimah will welcome twice-weekly flights from Ukraine’s capital city Kyiv to Ras Al Khaimah International Airport from 25 June 2021.
Just a short five-hour flight from Boryspil International Airport in Kyiv, travellers will enjoy direct and seamless entry into the Emirate via Ras Al Khaimah International Airport. They will also receive complimentary return PCR testing – a service that Ras Al Khaimah is extending to all international visitors. The first destination in the world to offer this facility, it serves as an example of the world-class safety protocols put in place that have led to safe certification from both Bureau Veritas, the international leader in testing, inspection and certification, and the WTTC (World Travel & Tourism Council) through its Safe Travels Stamp.
Ukraine is an increasingly important key source market for inbound tourism to the Emirate, which continues to see green shoots of recovery in terms of international travel since the reopening of borders. Through the new route, passengers will be able to explore Ras Al Khaimah and its wide range of experiences. These include adventures on Jebel Jais – the UAE’s highest peak in the Majestic Hajar mountains such as a survival course at the Bear Grylls Explorers Camp or exhilarating flight on the world’s longest zipline, as well as the opportunity to unwind in luxury at of one of its many world-class hotels, including Rixos, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, The Ritz Carlton and Hilton Hotels.
Visitors can also stroll along the Emirate’s pristine sandy beaches or immerse themselves in its rich culture and heritage at its UNESCO recognised heritage sites such as Dhayah Fort and Al Jazirah Al Hamra, as well as the Suwaidi Pearls Farm for a glimpse into the Emirate’s pearl trading past.
With flight frequency set to increase in the near future, UIA will be the first airline from Ukraine to fly into Ras Al Khaimah.
