Liverpool FC supporters faced a transport issue, due to which they cannot go to Kyiv for the final game of UEFA Champions League; as is known, the British are to face Real Madrid at NSC Olimpiysky stadium on Saturday.
According to Sky News, the team's management released a statement, which says a thousand of fans could not depart to Ukraine because of a transport collapse caused by the huge number of flights to Kyiv. Because of this circumstance, the administration of Boryspil International Airport failed to schedule the arrival time for three flights from England.
'World Choice Sports, which organized the trips, said on its website: "With deep regret, we have had to cancel three flights to Kiev. "Due to so many flights going into Kiev, Kiev Borispyl has [been] unable to allocate times for aircraft. We have worked extremely hard over the last 48 hours trying to resolve these issues. We have had Liverpool Football Club, police, UEFA and everyone at the highest levels of authority trying to resolve this. We have exhausted all avenues to try and get landing slots. We have had them from Liverpool airport and Manchester Airport and we have applied for slots in the correct manner and timeframe with the authorities. To reiterate, this problem IS with Kiev', the outlet quotes the statement.
Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson added he contacted his colleague in Kyiv, Vitali Klitschko to solve the issue. "Thank you for your help & support. Close to a solution now and more details will follow soon," he tweeted.
