FIFA World Cup Qualifier

England vs Ukraine - 10th October 2009

The 2nd Leg of the World Cup Qualifier was played in Dnipropetrovsk

On behalf of Katerina in Kiev and myself in the UK we would like to sincerely 'thank' all the England Football Supporters who booked their Ukraine trip requirements through us. It was a pleasure to meet the majority of our English Football Supporter client's in person in Kiev and to have you all as our clients.
 
Including clients travelling by train and by coaches to/from Dniprotrovsk we had over 900 supporters to look after, which was rather difficult at times because of the country's systems that they operate under, bureauracy etc when arranging the required services for such large groups, so we would like to thank all the English Supporters for their patience and understanding at times. You were all a total pleasure to deal with. Thanks hugely for all your feed back as shown on our Testimonial Page
 
 We hope we can be of service to you again, whether visiting Ukraine on holiday at some stage in the future, for the UEFA Competitions, or for Euro 2012.

These airlines generally offer online booking facilities. The airlines will raise their prices the closer the departure date becomes, so it is advisable to book in advance.
* Please note the train departure times. If you are flying into Kiev on the same day you must allow approx 45 minutes for Kiev's Boryspil Airport Arrival Formalities and approx 45 minutes transfer time from the airport to the railway station, when selecting and booking your flights into and out of Kiev. Airport check in for outbound flights from Kiev is 1.5 hrs before take off.

We can assist travelling 'Football Supporters' with the following -

Kiev

The transfer time from the airport to the city centre / railway station is approximately 45 minutes depending on traffic. Kiev's Boryspil Airport is not serviced by the city's Metro network or railway system. Taxi driver's will hugely rip foreigners off as their taxis do not have meters, so we do advise using the airport to city transfer services that we will be specially arranging. * Kiev Hotel Accommodation
