Bucharest International Airport replaced the name of Ukraine’s capital from Kiev to Kyiv, as Ukraine’s Ambassador to Romania Oleksandr Bankov reported on Facebook.

“Today, Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport started using a correct spelling of the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. I am grateful for cooperation and support!” he stated.

Earlier, same transformations were applied at the airports of Budapest, Tallinn, and Vilnius and at the London Luton International Airport.
