US gives go ahead for nonstop flights from Ukraine

by Richa 30. September 2013 04:58

Finally, Ukraine is out of the U.S. aviation radar. Travelers planning to check out of Ukraine for travel to the United States can now heave a sigh of relief. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has now expressed satisfaction and says safety concerns are not worrying it any more insofar as flights out of Ukraine are concerned. The Federal Aviation Administration recently gave the go ahead to Ukraine International Airlines to launch its flights services to the United States.

According to reports, Ukraine International Airlines though has been given green signal by the Federal Aviation Administration, it is still to reveal its plan and when it is to begin its operations.

The Federal Aviation Administration had earlier placed Ukraine in Category 2 safety rating in June 2005. This had greatly disturbed Ukraine, and it was working overtime with the FAA to align its safety oversight system with ICAO standards and practices.

The FAA has now upgraded Ukraine’s aviation safety rating to a Category 1. The upgrade was done after reviewing all the safety concerns and determining that Ukraine’s civil aviation authority was complying with international safety standards set by the International Civil Aviation Organization.

The upgrade to Category 1 safety rating status would now enable air carriers based in the eastern European nation of Ukraine to start adding direct flights to destinations in the United States.

According to media reports, Ukraine International Airlines is believed to have placed orders for some Boeing 777-200LR aircrafts. With the new aircrafts, the airline expects to begin operations from Kiev to U.S. destinations in future.
