Please check that your carry-on luggage is properly positioned, your table folded, the backrest of your seat upright and your seatbelt fastened. We remind you that smoking on board is strictly prohibited on all FlyUIA flights.
… at this point it is more than possible that I am already sleeping. I should not confess this, but before the plane takes off I am already in the arms of Morfeo and more if in this case the flight is nocturnal. The airplanes have a magical something that relaxes me, I close my eyes and still without sleep I begin to dream about my next destination, without interference or noise, but with a little cold! (How cold it is on airplanes!) This would be for another post, especially on transoceanic flights, even if you go to the hottest corner of the planet, you can never miss a sweater and a jacket so you do not die of cold on the plane, do not forget never this traveler advice)
Although this time I have to say in my defense that the night flight invited to sleep and relax, to be able to arrive with maximum energy to Kiev the next morning, well, to be exact in 4 hours. A perfect flight schedule if you are going to make an international long-distance connection with FlyUIA via Kiev.

My experience with Ukraine International Airlines
I have flown several times with FlyUIA to Kiev and Ivano Frankivsk and the experience has been fantastic.
The website of Ukraine International Airlines is very intuitive and easy to use, as are the purchase steps. It is necessary to check online before arriving at the airport, you can do it from the web and print the boarding pass or download the App and do it from your mobile, you can share the image of the QR code in case you travel several and some of them run out of battery .
The deal with the staff, both land and crew was perfect on both occasions, the hostesses are very friendly and the truth is that today I can only say positive things about the Ukrainian airline.
I am especially happy that from April and May we have direct flights from Alicante and from Valencia to Ivano Frankivsk, the gateway to the Carpathians, the most incredible landscapes of Ukraine and also the setting for films.
Do you need a visa to travel to Ukraine?
Remember that to travel to Ukraine , Spaniards only need a valid passport valid for more than 6 months.
If you are a national of another country, I recommend that you visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine , there you will find all the details and requirements according to your nationality.
The passport control at the Kiev airport is very convenient and fast and the information is very well marked in Ukrainian and English.
