DONETSK, June 28 /ITAR-TASS/. The international airport of Ukraine’s eastern industrial city of Donetsk has been closed till October 31, a source in Ukraine’s state-run air traffic control authority Ukraerorukh told ITAR-TASS on Friday.
“The airport will stay closed for technical reasons till October 31,” the source said, quoting a special message of several hours ago. The official did not specify what the technical reasons were. The message he was referring to contained no hints on that score either.
No new information about the airgate’s further operation has appeared on the airport’s official website yet. On its homepage one can find only a statement of June 3, when Ukraine’s state aviation service closed down the airport till June 30.
Earlier, Ukraerorukh told ITAR-TASS that “for technical reasons” the international airport of another eastern city, Lugansk, has been closed till September 10. The official website says current repairs of lighting and radio navigation equipment, the runway and power supply cables are in progress.
All passenger flights in the airspace over the Donetsk and Lugansk regions are prohibited by the Ukrainian aviation authorities.
