Khors Air (Ukrainian: Авіакомпанія Хорс) is an airline based in Kiev, Ukraine, operating mainly charter flights within Ukraine, to Europe and the Middle East out of the Kyiv International Airport.[1]

History

The airline was founded and started operations in 1990 using Ilyushin Il-76, Yakovlev Yak-40, Antonov An-24 and Antonov An-26 aircraft, since then mainly serving the CIS. In 1992 an Antonov An-12 was purchased. In 2000 Khors Air replaced its ageing fleet of Soviet aircraft with American-built McDonnell Douglas DC-9-51 aircraft and (from 2004) McDonnell Douglas MD-82.[citation needed]

In 2005 a Kiev to Dubai, Male and Jakarta service was started using a Boeing 757-200ER aircraft but soon had to be halted.[2]

In 2017, the United States of America has proposed sanctions against Khors Air due to them leasing out aircraft to airlines in Iran.[3][4]

Destinations

Most flights operated by the airline are non-scheduled charter flights. As of March 2013, Khors Air offered weekly scheduled domestic flights between Kiev-Zhuliany and Ivano-Frankivsk as well as charter flights between Athens and Kiev-Zhuliany.[citation needed]
