DD commenter “Aryeh” notes that he stopped over for longer in Kiev and for $100 he had a private driver (contact info here) take him to the gravesites of the Baal Shem Tov Zt’l, Rebbe Nachman Zt’l, and R’ Levi Yitzchok Zt’l. DD commenter Yakov had the same positive experience as well.

To help find dates with longer connections you can use Google’s ITA Matrix. See this post for a demonstration and then use advanced routing code:
PS+ / minconnect 240
Where PS+ limits the search to Ukraine Air flights only and the number 240 refers to the minimum amount of minutes that you wish to remain in Kiev. You can make that number any amount that you want.

For the dates below I used routing code
PS+ / maxconnect 240
to find flights that have connection with a maximum of 240 minutes.


















After finding valid dates just plug them into Priceline to make the book tickets.

Was torn between booking 2 tickets on El Al vs Ukraine, but the difference was approx $700 total so I booked Ukraine. March 6 – March 15 for total $998.72.


Ukraine Air also lets you take 2 bags free per person correct?


@Anonymous: 2 free bags per passenger.
Flight 777 does not mean Boeing 777 aircraft! You wish!


Are the dates available for long term stays, e.g. November to April?


Hi, I am new at this. But I went to priceline and put in dates that are stated above and no Ukranian Air options came up. How do I find the flights? I put in the 18th of april and 3 of May


April 18 is not a valid date from this post.


Thanks. I looked at all the returns thinking that includes both. My mistake. Thanks


I got a flight out on Nov 22 but the return is not working for dec 3 Dec 1 works but the flight leaves telaviv early in the morning at 5:30 Am meaning you got to be at lod at 3:30 in the morning…any other option??


@ruthy: There is another option: Pay more money.
