Good evening,

while planning a trip to the Ukraine in the visa-free summer, I stumbled over the Aerosvit homepage. Apparently, they fly Tupolev 134s on domestic sectors. Anybody knows which aircraft or airline that would be ? They don´t have own Tupolev 134s.

Thanks,

Sebastian

Most likely these are chartered aircraft from the remnants of Ukraine International Airlines (UIA). I will do some checking and see if I can find out for you. The TU-134 is really fun to fly on, have a great time!

UIA, I thought UIA/PS only ran 737s. The Tu-134 is a great, fun plane. Could these be the remnants of 6U/Air Ukraine?

Hmmm, I think you are right....I always mix up Air Ukraine with UIA. In any case look for the skylight in the bathroom! Also, if you are nice and call ahead of time (and/or bring gifts), somebody might let you ride in the navigator's glass nose position....

Bring gifts..lol. I still keep on coming back to this time I was at LWO, and a pilot for Lviv Airlines (who's a friend of an ex-F/O on the An-24) was like, "Would you like to fly to Venice and back with us on a Yak-42?". I bet I would have been able to jumpseat for part of that (pre-9/11, I got to walk around the ramp no problem) I was really tempted to go, but something cause dme not to. I still regret that to this day.
