Ukraine International Airlines posted an interesting message on LinkedIn last weekend. It is offering part of its fleet for wet leasing for charters or humanitarian flights, using aircraft that are outside the country. “Using our aircraft, you support UIA operations during the war and help pay taxes to the state budget of Ukraine.” But which aircraft are available? Ukraine International offers fleet for wet lease and charters.

AirInsight checked the status of Ukraine’s fleet via FlightAware. Until February 24, the day that Russian troops started the invasion of Ukraine, the airline had a fleet of 25 aircraft. That includes two Boeing 767-300ERs that have not been used for some time and are at Kyiv Boryspil Airport.
There are eight other aircraft in Kyiv as well, including three Boeing 737-800s, one -900ER, and five Embraer E190STDs. One Embraer is stranded in Odessa.
