Azur Air Ukraine, until October 2015 UTair-Ukraine,[2] (Ukrainian: ЮТейр-Україна, Russian: ЮТэйр-Украина) is a Ukrainian airline based at Boryspil International Airport. It used to be a subsidiary of Russian UTair Aviation. In October 2015, it has been announced that tour operator Anex Tours would acquire UTair-Ukraine from UTair Aviation.[2]

History[edit]

UTair-Ukraine Boeing 737-800

UTair-Ukraine (2008-2015)[edit]

Founded in 2008, UTair-Ukraine was set up as the Ukrainian subsidiary of Russian parent company, UTair Aviation, to serve domestic and international destinations.

Azur Air Ukraine (2015-present)[edit]

In October 2015, it has been announced that tour operator Anex Tours would acquire UTair-Ukraine from UTair Aviation with the aim to rebrand it to Azur Air Ukraine as a leisure charter carrier. UTair Ukraine already shifted its focus from domestic services to leisure operations earlier and therefore phased out several planes.[3][4] The sale and rebranding was confirmed shortly after.[2] A few weeks later, Anex also bought the Russian Azur Air which the "new" Ukrainian Azur Air is now a sister company of.[2]
