Ivano-Frankivsk, formerly Stanyslaviv, is a historic city located in western Ukraine. Andrzej Potocki founded the city in 1662 and named it Stanyslaviv, after his father Stanyslav. It started out as a defense castle against the Crimean Tatars and as a stronghold of Polish lords in Galicia. In the late 18th century, the city was taken by the Hapsburg Empire, in whose hands it stayed until the beginning of World War I. In 1918, it became the capital of the short-lived West Ukrainian People’s Republic. The city celebrated its 300th anniversary in 1962 as part of the USSR, and its name changed to Ivano-Frankivsk. In addition to fascinating historic and architectural riches, Ivano-Frankivsk is known for its leisurely and harmonious life.

Introductory trip fares are available from Istanbul to Ivano-Frankivsk and from Ivano-Frankivsk to Istanbul $99 (including taxes and fees).

Additionally, for the first 6 months of operation to the new destinations, there is a special offer for Miles&Smiles members, with a 25% reduction in the miles needed to redeem either award tickets or upgrades.
