"Today, the Lviv airport receives and sends the first flights after the resumption of regular passenger flights to Lviv and Berlin. These would be Dortmund - Lviv, Lviv - Dortmund and Berlin - Lviv. The [civil] aviation is gradually starting to recover, and this cannot but rejoice," Krykliy wrote.
As we reported before, Kyiv international airport has temporarily suspended servicing of international flights until Wednesday, June 17. The reason is the ongoing lockdown and the current incidence of coronavirus in Kyiv.
"Kyiv international airport does not service regular international passenger flights until 3 a.m. local time of June 17, 2020, due to extension of Covid-19 quarantine in Kyiv (...)," reads the message.
As of June 16, Kyiv was declared not ready for the weakening of quarantine measures, as the Covid-19 incidence in the Ukrainian capital remained high. However, border checkpoints in all airports were opened on June 15.
