Igor Sikorsky Kyiv International Airport (Zhuliany) has received permission from the State Aviation Service to operate flights and has resumed its work. This was announced by Kyiv Mayor Vitaliy Klitschko during a briefing that was broadcasted by 112 Ukraine TV channel.
"I would like to inform you that Igor Sikorsky Kyiv International Airport has resumed its operations. The airlines have received permission from the State Aviation Service to operate international flights from Kyiv International Airport," the mayor said.
According to Klitschko, the city authorities did not close the airport. Airlines could not operate flights due to a ban on international flights.
The mayor of Kyiv also noted that the authorities understood the complexity of the situation, due to which the airport suffered great losses.
As we reported earlier, Poland has resumed international air traffic on the territory of the EU and the EFTA (European Free Trade Association).
However, the flights from Kyiv that were scheduled on June 17 are now canceled.
