First Direct Flight Kyiv to Sanya, China
Sanya is a city located on the tropical Hainan Island
The first direct flight from Kyiv to the city of Sanya, located on the tropical Hainan Island in China, will be launched on May 28.
“Never before has Hainan been so close to a Ukrainian tourist. Until now, Ukrainians traveled to the island with refueling flights to Almaty. The preparations for launching direct flights lasted more than a year. To date, all the agreements have been reached and package tours with direct flights operated by the Ukraine International Airlines have appeared in the market. Flights will be operated on a Boeing 767 (254 seats). The travel time is expected to be about 11 hours. During the flight, passengers will be offered two hot meals,” said Olena Stankevych, the Marketing Director of Compass Ukraine.
The flights will be performed once a week on Tuesdays. In October, the tour operator plans to increase the frequency of flights up to two times a week.
