The SkyUp Airlines plane, which is on a special flight from Kiev to German Frankfurt, has taken off from Boryspil airport.
This is stated in a comment from SkyUp.
“At 7:04 p.m. local time, the special flight PQ907 on the Kiev – Frankfurt route took off from Boryspil airport. In accordance with the clarifications received from the GACU, the delay in departure was caused by the need to carry out additional organization and control procedures in connection with the extension of the quarantine measures, ”the report said.
The passengers are said to include foreigners, EU citizens, including diplomats. Many of them return home via Frankfurt in transit.
