According to Kyrlych, a plane from Ukraine is expected to arrive at Sharm El Sheikh airport in the afternoon and there is a hope that Ukrainian tourists will set out to Ukraine today.

He added that a new plane is sent due to the fact that Lviv airport, where Ukrainians are going to come, “did not have an opportunity to accept the plane ordered by the travel agency”.

The representative of the Foreign Ministry noted that for now, Ukrainians are waiting for the flight in the hotels as according to the demands of the airport administration, one can be on its territory no longer than two hours.


It should be mentioned that there is no information on the situation published on the website of the tourist agency.

Earlier, it was reported that 200 Ukrainian tourists could not set out from Sharm El Sheikh. According to their messages on the social networks, there were no reports on what was going on.
