Bukovyna Airlines, also known as Bukovyna Aviation Enterprise, is a charter airline based in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, operating chartered passenger flights out of Chernivtsi International Airport.[1]

History

The company was founded in 1999.[2] In 2013 Bukovyna was one of two Ukrainian airlines that had sanctions imposed against them by the US government. Bukovyna Airlines was hit with sanctions because it was leasing its US-built McDonnell Douglas MD-80 series aircraft to Iranian airlines Mahan Air and Iran Air. The Iranian airlines were themselves under sanction by the US government.[3][4]
