Ukraine International Airlines (UIA) will cancel flights between Lviv and Tel Aviv from 8 November until the end of the winter season and cancel flights between Kharkiv and Tel Aviv until December 5 this year.

The airline announced this in a statement, the CFTS portal reports.

According to the statement, the flights were canceled because of the extension of the quarantine that the Israeli government imposed to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

However, other flights between Ukraine and Israel will remain unchanged during the winter: Kyiv – Tel Aviv – Kyiv (eight flights per week); Odesa – Tel Aviv – Odesa (two per week); Dnipro – Tel Aviv – Dnipro (one per week); Kharkiv – Tel Aviv – Kharkiv (one per week from December 6).

"UIA will closely monitor the epidemiological situation in the country to avoid missing the opportunity to resume flights when the situation stabilizes," the statement said.

As the CFTS portal reported earlier, UIA recently presented its basic flight schedule for the winter season. The airline will operate flights to two London airports in the winter and operate flights to only three domestic destinations.
