Cheap Flights to Ukraine

Few travelers think to include Ukraine on their European itinerary.  That's unfortunate, as it means they are missing out on some of the most beautiful religious sites, historic cities and natural regions in the world.  What's more, Ukraine's beauty can be experienced for a fraction of the price of comparable destinations in Western Europe. 

Best Time to Book a Flight to Ukraine

The best time to visit Ukraine is during spring and autumn.  During these months prices are still low, the weather is pleasant, and the country's most popular attractions are not yet overrun with crowds.  Both Kiev and Lviv have citywide celebrations in May, and the entire country also celebrates Victory Day around the same time.  To find the cheapest flights to Ukraine in spring and fall, try using Skyscanner's month search feature to explore all of the possible routes and rates in the thirty-day period of your choice. 

Airlines That Fly to Ukraine

Although there are no direct flights between Canada and Ukraine, many airlines connect the two countries with a single stopover at one of Europe's major airports.  Popular flight options including flying through Frankfurt with Lufthansa, through Amsterdam with KLM, or through Istanbul with Turkish Airlines.  Skyscanner has a complete list of airlines that connect Canada and Ukraine. 

Travelers to Ukraine usually arrive at Kiev's Boryspil International Airport or at Lviv's Danylo Halytskyi International Airport.  Boryspil Airport has three regular terminals and one terminal reserved for VIP passengers.  It is located thirty-five kilometers from the city center and has round-the-clock express bus service linking the airport with Kiev's central railway station.  The smaller airport in Lviv is only seven kilometers from the city center and has frequent bus and trolleybus service to the historic center. 

What to See and Do in Ukraine

Kiev is a popular first stop on most Ukrainian itineraries. The capital's most famous attraction is the Kyevo-Pecherska Lavra, an Orthodox monastery carved deep into a cave.  Kiev is also the departure point for the many day trips to the areas surrounding Chernobyl, which was decimated by a nuclear meltdown in 1986.  Another can't-miss city is Lviv, which has a well-preserved historical city center full of beautiful cathedrals, pastel-hued buildings and fragrant coffee shops.  To the south, the towns of the Carpathian Mountains offer world-class skiing, hiking and spas.  Skyscanner's hotel search connects travelers with the most comfortable hotels in the best locations across Ukraine, and its car rental search is ideal for travelers who want to explore Ukraine without spending hours on slow-moving public transportation.    

Tips and Advisories for Travel to Ukraine

At present, the Canadian government advises against all travel to Crimea (including Odesa), Donetsk Oblast and Luhansk Oblast.  Due to ongoing political and military conflicts in these regions, limited consular support is available for Canadians in these zones.  Travelers are also encouraged to steer clear of political demonstrations occurring elsewhere in the country, as they frequently turn violent.
