History

UTair-Ukraine (2008-2015)

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)

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]
