Now we are opening a seasonal regular flight Kharkiv-Sharjah (United Arab Emirates)-Kharkiv, and after the Dubai International Airport renovation, we plan to launch the flight Kharkiv-Dubai (United Arab Emirates)-Kharkiv. All of these are steps of the SkyUp Airlines flight program expansion strategy from the regions of Ukraine.

We are pleased that our passengers will be able to fly comfortably to the UAE on direct flights starting from March. Thanks to our productive cooperation with SkyUp Airlines, flights Kharkiv-Sharjah are already the second new destination after Odessa, which is launched by the airline from Kharkiv Airport in 2019,” said Volodymyr Vasylchenko, Kharkiv International Airport General Director, New Systems AM, a member of Oleksandr Yaroslavsky’s DCH Group.
