KIEV, December 22. /TASS/. The airport in the Ukrainian city of Zaporozhye will be closed for flights for two more days, the UNIAN news agency said on Monday, citing the head of Ukraine’s State Aviation Service, Denis Antonyuk.
“The flight ban at the airport will stay in place for another two days, till Thursday morning,” Antonyuk said. “The reason is the same - to ensure passengers’ security.”
Ukraine’s State Aviation Service closed for civil flights airports in the cities of Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk and Zaporozhye on December 13 due to “security considerations.” The airports in Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk resumed operation on December 16.
