Flights will depart Sharjah at 12.25pm, arriving in Kiev at 4.25pm. Return flights will depart Kiev at 5.10pm and arrive in Sharjah at 11pm.

"Ukraine is one of the fastest growing economies in Eastern Europe, and there is considerable passenger traffic between the country and the Middle East, particularly for tourism and business. We look forward to introducing non-stop service between Kiev and Sharjah next month, and to offering our value-for-money service to everyone seeking friendly and efficient travel between these two dynamic regions," said A.K.
