Poland 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. A correspondent of Yevropeiska Pravda reported that, citing the Polish Cabinet.
The government allowed to host flights from EU member countries and member countries of the European Free Trade Association, except for Sweden, Portugal, and the UK.
Flights of Wizz Air and LOT companies were supposed to depart from Kyiv to Poland on June 17. They were delayed, just like the return flights from that country.
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. The airport's press office reported that on Facebook.
"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.
The Cabinet's decree No. 392 prevents airports in cities with high Covid-19 incidence from servicing any international transportations.
