Delta To Start Flights To Kiev

ATLANTA, USA -- The U.S. Department of Transportation has granted approval for Delta Air Lines Inc. to add 11 new routes from the Unites States to Ukraine starting in June.

Atlanta-based Delta plans to offer customers non-stop flights five days a week between New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and Borispol Airport in Kiev, Ukraine, starting June 5, subject to Ukrainian government approval.

"Kiev will be the latest destination in Delta's expansion into the key business and leisure markets of Eastern Europe," said Bob Cortelyou, Delta vice president of Network Planning. "Delta will be the only U.S. carrier to serve Kiev, and business travelers on both sides of the Atlantic, as well as friends and family of Ukrainian heritage in the United States, will look forward to this new non-stop service between New York-JFK and Kiev."

Delta operates its second-largest hub at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport.
