--way back at the start of the episode 9 thread (in a crazy burst of newbie enthusiasm!) I did some airport work...I'll re-summarize here:
Basically, according to Lonely Planet
, you have three choices for airports to fly into: Kiev metro
(5 miles outside the city, Kiev Borispol
(25 miles from the city), or interestingly, Odessa
which is only 7 miles from Kiev.
Checking both Amadeus and Airwise for Saturdays and June 17th--the first flights of the day seem to boil down to a couple of options:
1)--Kiev-Borispol: Dep 9:25 via Warsaw, Arr 1:35 (they show this flight leaving from the metro and
borispol airports with the same flight # so could be "taxis to the wrong airport time"!
2)--Kiev-Odessa: Dep 8:25 via Vienna, Arr 2:00 (while this is a later arrival time, you are 18 miles closer to Kiev!
Never mind the Odessa stuff--it is a LONG way away!edited to say:G-man
beat me to it with much more complete flight info!
A couple of things though--do all of those flights go on a Sat.? I seemed to find limited flights on the weekends...
And I think they're actually doing the rapelling about 10-10:30 PM so probably are stuck with the AM flights..
Maybe you could see what you think about Odessa??
