ODESSA, December 25 (Itar-Tass) – Thick fog that has enveloped the environs of Odessa, Ukraine’s largest city on the Black Sea and home to a million people, has called the cancelation of over a dozen flights international and domestic flights at the local airport, Maria Popovich, the press secretary of the air hub said Tuesday night.
The cancelations have affected the inbound flights from Istanbul, Warsaw, Moscow, and some other foreign capitals.
One of the flights from Moscow was diverted to the southeast city of Dnepropetrovsk, while a jet from Kiev had to return to Kiev’s Borispol airport.
In the meantime, weather forecaster predict an anomalous hike of air temperatures in the next two or three days – to 16 C from minus 17 C – due to the impact of an approaching Atlantic cyclone. Protracted periods of thick fog are expected.
