From Kyiv (KPB) to Sofia (SOF) only 1956 uan
One of the oldest in Europe, the capital of Bulgaria began its multifaceted history in the 8th century. Here, Roman ruins peacefully coexist with Stalinist Empire style architecture. The romance of the 90s has been preserved here mixed with the architectural modernity. It's beautiful, cheap, authentic and very home-like here.

SkyInterior on our sides SkyUp is one of the reasons why it is so pleasant and comfortable to fly with us. This is an integrated approach to the design of the aircraft cabin, which is based on the principles of ergonomics, rationalism and, of course, comfort.
The main and really impressive effect, which is noted by absolutely everything - is the multi-colored interior lighting, which is selected depending on the phase of flight. The colors change very smoothly within a few minutes and create an inconspicuous calming and relaxing effect during the flight.
In the night phase of the flight, the light is turned off; for comfort, only the pleasant blue Sky Skylight remains, which somewhat resembles the light of the moon. At dawn, when the time to wake up, the color of the backlight changes to orange-pink - the color of the rising sun.
