Getting to Ivano Frankivsk Airport

Flights to Ivano Frankivsk Airport are available from Toronto using a combination of carriers to make the trip. This is called codesharing, where you buy a ticket on one airline but may fly on one or more partner carriers. Airlines providing service include WestJet, Air France, Air Transat, Primera Air, Ukraine International, LOT, and Turkish Airlines. The carriers used on your selected route are listed. You'll have a minimum of two-stops each direction, which makes your trip a lot shorter. Also, pay attention to the "self-transfer" notations. Depending on where your connecting flights are, you may have to re-check your bags and go through security screening. Sometimes a visa is needed for the connecting airport. Your final flight segment will be on Ukraine International Airlines or Turkish Air, the only carriers that fly in and out of Ivano Frankivsk.

Airport Facilities

Ivano Frankivsk Airport has one terminal for both arriving and departing passengers. Canadians need a passport to enter the country, but no visa if you are staying less than 90 days. You may be asked to show you have sufficient funds for your stay. Customs clearance has two sections. Use the Green section if you have only personal belongings and the legally-allowed amount of cash and other goods. Head for the Red section if anything you are carrying needs a special permit or if you have an excess of goods, worth more than roughly $1,500 CAD.

Once you've cleared customs, you'll find taxis and shuttles outside the baggage claim area. The shuttles are great if you travel light, having only one bag per passenger. It takes about 30 minutes to make the trip into downtown. Taxis take about half that to make the trip. Car rentals desks are available, but if you're just visiting the Ivano Frankivsk area, you may not need your own wheels. Downtown bus service is reliable, and the town is very walkable. Accepted currency is the Ukrainian hryvnia. One ATM is available at the airport, and there are several in the downtown core.
