Hi all,

I used to fly with Wizzair, but since they changed their schedule this year, i switched to Ukraine International.

What I don't like is their price, its a little steep!.

Wizzair = 130 Euro / roundtrip / 1 person, UIA = 430 Euro / roundtrip / 1 person.

However, even with 1 sleepover in kiev, wizzair would be cheaper but I hear they also have problems paying the bills.

Does anyone have other alternatives?

Mark

Most of the airlines have problems but paying with your credit card I think you are protected and you can always claim your money back, if the go bust!

Ukraine International was always very expensive..... and to be honest I never understood how they survived al these years.

Have you checked flights on aerosvit?
Not sure if they fly from AMS.

Sorry I know so little now.......

Aerosvit does fly on Amsterdam Airport. but then you have a 1-day sleep over in Moscow instead of Kiev. Bit ridicolous for a flighttime of only 4 hours.
(+ I'd need a visa for Russia!!!!)

Then I'd rather fly wizzair and maybe take the night-train from kiev->simferopol. The end price will be the same, except I wont have to fly in the morning.
