Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) has canceled Kyiv-London flight, which was scheduled for April 29, due to a ban by Ukraine’s State Aviation Service. The flight was organized in order to send Ukrainian citizens who have a long-term contract with their employer in the UK. This was reported by UIA’s press service.
The plane was scheduled to depart at 12:40.
"Accordingly, this category is not a risk for Ukraine. These citizens will not need evacuation any time soon and will not be potential distributors of Сovid-19 throughout the territory of Ukraine," the message reads.
The airlines assured that they would try to get permission to operate the flight.
As we reported earlier, the EU ministers of tourism decided to develop a certificate of security in the sphere of tourism under provisional name Covid-passport.
“We have finished the informal conference of the ministers with the participation of all countries-members and European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton. We reached several conclusions, particularly, in the organization of the joint European approach to emerging from the crisis. It will include the creation of joint protocols and measures in the spheres of health and security. The ministers agreed that the common document under provision name Covid-passport should be created and it will work all over the EU,” Croatian Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli noted.
