Ukraine International Airlines (PS, Kiev Boryspil) has taken delivery of its first E195 after UR-EMG (msn 19000088) was ferried from Clermont-Ferrand to Kiev Boryspil on Tuesday, March 12. The carrier said the jet would be deployed into service later this month and would be followed by a second of the type, msn 19000069, later in the year.

"This type of aircraft will allow the airline to work more efficiently, as it will be an adequate replacement for the Boeing 737 Classics that were completely withdrawn from UIA's fleet at the end of last year," UIA Communications Director Evgenia Satskaya said. "This replacement, in particular, will be particularly relevant to domestic flights, since not all regional airports in Ukraine are currently capable of receiving heavier and more passenger-intensive B737-800s."

According to the ch-aviation fleets module, UIA also operates four other E190s (three -LRs and one -STD) on flights from Kiev Boryspil to Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Chernivtsi, Odesa, Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Dnipro, and Kharkiv domestically as well as to destinations across Eastern, Central, and Western Europe, Scandinavia, and the Middle East.
