In July 2013 Ukraine International Airlines and Rossiya Russian Airlines signed a cooperation agreement, which allowed increasing UIA flight frequency en route Kiev – St. Petersburg up to three daily flights.
Carriers have signed a code-share agreement en route Kiev – St. Petersburg – Kiev. Thanks to the agreement passengers from the regions of Ukraine and other points of the leading Ukrainian carrier`s route network are provided with an opportunity to quickly and easily reach the Northern capital of the Russian Federation via Ukrainian capital.
Code-share agreement not only increases Kiev – St. Petersburg service frequency up to three daily UIA-operated flights, but also allows passengers of Rossiya Russian Airlines to access broad UIA route network. Arriving from St. Petersburg at Kiev Boryspil International airport passengers will be able to take advantage of conveniently scheduled UIA flights departing to the cities of Ukraine, as well as capitals and key cities of Europe, Georgia, the United Arab Emirates, the CIS countries, and the Middle East.
