I'm noticing Ukrainian Airlines has some very low fares relative to other airlines for a trip I need to make (AMS to TLV and back). It's a bit of a detour, but for about $200 instead of $300 it looks like it's worth it.
However, I'm worried there's some sort of a "catch". Maybe it's just the fact that Ukraine is not so stable these days with the civil war, so the airline is offsetting that fact with better deals; but - maybe there's some potential danger I should be aware of.
I know there that a Malaysian airliner was shot down near Donetsk in 2014, but:
- It was a year and a half ago.
- It hasn't happened since.
- Going from Europe to Kiyv and then South towards Palestine/Israel does not take you close to the Donbass region.
Are there additional established potential security concerns I should be worried about?
