Low cost Flights into Ukraine
The number of airlines serving Kiev’s Borispol airport from across Europe is constantly growing, and ticket prices are slowly but surely coming down.
The best recent news for travelers to Kiev is the start of a “no frills” airline revolution, with Wizz Air starting flights.
Remember – the key to picking up the cheapest fares is booking as early as possible, preferably a couple of months in advance.
Flights from England
Not only are flights available from four major London airports (Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton and Stansted), but there are also prices to suit every budget.
Wizz Air is the cheap and cheerful option for the traveller on a budget. Flights leave London Luton five times a week, with return trips costing as little as £85. Thankfully, Wizz Air flights might be cheap, but they are also comfortable and reliable.
British Airways is the luxury option for getting to Kiev. Flights go from London Heathrow daily, with return tickets starting from £260.
Ukraine International Airlines is Ukraine’s national carrier, so if you want to get immersed straight away, you know which airline to choose! They offer daily flights from London Gatwick, with returns from £210.
Flights from the U.S.
Flying from the U.S. gives you plenty of options – many of which involve a stop in another country on the way.
There are too many different airlines to list here, but you can find a variety of offers from Lufthansa, Air France, KLM and Ukraine International Airlines.
Use a price comparison website such as expedia.com to make sure you get the cheapest deal on the dates you want to fly.
Flights from Germany
If you’re flying from Germany, there are a large number of good value offers.
Wizz Air also flies from Dortmund and Cologne, with return flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Germanwings flies from cities across the country: Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Dresden, Leipzig and Hamburg.
Ukraine International Airlines offers reasonable prices on flights from Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich.
Lufthansa gives you that added bit of luxury on flights from Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf.
Carpatair flies from Dusseldorf, Munich and Stuttgart (as well as Vienna, Austria and a number of cities in Italy) to the west Ukrainian city of Lvov via Romania. This may seem a little inconvenient, but it gives you the opportunity to check out this beautiful city before taking an overnight train journey to Kiev, getting you immersed in the language and culture straight away.
Flights from the rest of Europe
The “no frills” airline concept is yet to catch on in the rest of Europe, but there are plenty of reasonably priced flights out there.
The best way to find the cheapest ticket is using a price comparison website.

Getting from the airport
Getting from the airport to your accommodation couldn’t be easier. The simplest option is to book a taxi with us, and we’ll make sure a driver is at the airport to meet you when you arrive and take you directly to where you will be staying.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous, take the bus from the airport – the stop is just outside the terminal on the right.
It stops at Kharkovskaya metro station and the central railway station, and tickets cost around 25 hryvnias (about £2/$3).
