This comes as a relief for those who regularly travel
between Ukraine and the U.S. directly, which can be up to three hours
shorter than flights involving transfers, since direct flights have been banned since September 19,
2013 by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.

The American regulator slapped on the ban because it was receiving serious complaints
about safety issues regarding Ukrainian airline operators.

Now it takes approximately 10 hours to travel from
Kyiv to the New York, while the return flight takes slightly less time, according to Evgeniya Satska, UIA spokeswoman. Meanwhile, Volodymyr
Haidamaka, UIA pilot of the Boeing 767-300 that flies this route, says
it is possible to cover that distance by a little more than 9 hours.
