Ukraine International Airlines PJSC, often shortened to UIA (Ukrainian: Авіакомпанія Міжнародні Авіалінії України), is the flag carrier and the largest airline of Ukraine, with its head office in Kiev, and its main hub at Kiev's Boryspil International Airport.
The airline started operations on 25 November 1992 with a Kiev-London flight. It became one of the first "joint ventures with foreign capital" in Ukraine and the first airline in the former Soviet Union to use new Boeing 737-400 aircraft.The founding shareholders were the Ukrainian Association of Civil Aviation and Guinness Peat Aviation (GPA), an Irish aircraft-leasing company.
The airline began cargo operations with a Boeing 737-200 aircraft on 13 November 1994 to London and Amsterdam.
In 2000 the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development became a shareholder by investing $5.4 million. In 2006 UIA adopted a new classification-system for freight operations which allowed the airline to carry a wider range of goods, ranging from live animals to fresh food and valuable objects. Additionally, an express service was introduced to meet the needs of customers wishing to make use of expedited cargo-delivery services.
