The first Qatar Airways flight from Doha to Kyiv touched down on 28 August at Boryspil International Airport, marking the launch of direct daily flights between Doha and the Ukrainian capital.

The new route by the World’s Best Airline will be served with an Airbus A320 aircraft. 

Qatar Airways Group chief executive, 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.”

Chief executive officer of Kyiv Boryspil International Airport, 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.”
