The Russian airline, Aeroflot, will resume flights to Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk on 1 December, the Interfax news agency reports, citing the Russian Transport Clearing House.

The carrier will perform seven flights to Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk per week, using Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) aircraft.

As reported, Aeroflot decided to cancel all flights to Odessa for one week and flights to Dnepropetrovsk for one month after a Boeing 777 belonging to the Malaysia Airlines was shot down in the Donbass industrial region on July 17. The airline later extended the cancellations of flights to these cities and resumed flights to Odessa on October 11.

Earlier, Aeroflot said that the number of its flights to Ukraine had reduced from 72 to 52 per week. The company suspended flights to Kharkiv and Donetsk on May 2.
