UM Airlines (Ukrainian: Українсько-середземноморські авіалінії, Ukrayinsʹko-сeredzemnomorsʹki аvialiniyi, also known as Ukrainian - Mediterranean Airlines or UM Air) is an airline based in Kiev, Ukraine. It operates services to the CIS countries and the Middle East. The airline was established by Lebanese businessmen in 1998 and began operations in June, 2000. It was founded as an open-end joint stock company. In 2003 UM Air had over 500 employees and carried 210,000 passengers. The airline now has 640 staff.
In 2007, the Ukrainian Air Administration refused to renew UM Airlines' license because of safety concerns. In September 2007 the European Commission banned Ukrainian-Mediterranean Airlines from operating in airspace over the European Union, citing safety issues. This meant that it was banned for safety reasons from operating services of any kind within the European Union. In November 2009, the airline was allowed to resume operations with its McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft by the European Commission. In 2013 UM Airlines was one of two Ukrainian airlines that had sanctions imposed against them by the US government. UM Airlines was accused of supplying British Aerospace BAe 146 series aircraft to Iranian airline Mahan Air and of training Mahan Air pilots and maintenance technicians. Mahan Air was itself already under sanction by the US government. UM's owner and Chairman Rodrigue Merhej was also personally placed under sanction.
