SkyUp launches charter flights from Ukraine to Hambantota

Ukrainian airline SkyUp Airlines made its first flight from Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, to Hambantota MRIA Airport.

The charter flight program will last until March 17, 2022 and will provide only the option of a 10-day round-trip departing from Kyiv. The flight lasts 10 hours 40 minutes and provides a technical stop at Sharjah Airport (UAE). Flights will be operated 4 times a week - on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.

Resort destinations with a warm climate are especially popular among Ukrainian tourists, including Sri Lanka. After a nine-month lockdown in Sri Lanka, Ukrainians became the first tourists to visit the island on a SkyUp flight in late 2020. According to the State Agency for Tourism Development of Ukraine, the number of Ukrainians travelling to Sri Lanka is growing every year: if in 2020 the island was visited by 1.7 thousand Ukrainian tourists, in the first half of 2021 this number was more than 2.5 thousand people, who flew to rest in Sri Lanka.

SkyUp Airlines is a private Ukrainian airline, the ultimate beneficiaries of which are Tetiana, Yuriy, and Oleksandr Alba. The company works on a hybrid model - operates charter flights and scheduled flights.

The flight program includes more than 60 international destinations from Kyiv and the regions - Odesa, Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv, and Lviv. The network of routes covers Europe, North Africa, the Caucasus, and Central Asia.

SkyUp offers its passengers several fare plans for travel with numerous discounts.
