This evening, Lufthansa Group announced the suspension of all flights to and from the Ukrainian cities of Kyiv and Odessa. According to the brief statement published on the website, the flights will be discontinued from Monday, February 21, till February 28.
The statement further says, “Lufthansa is constantly monitoring the situation and will decide on further flights at a later date.”
The Group, which owns Germany’s flagship carrier, Eurowings, Swiss, Brussels Airlines, and Austrian Airlines, will operate some last flights to both cities over the weekend before suspending flights from Monday until the end of the month.
Meanwhile, all Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines flights to Lviv will continue as scheduled, as the city lies in Western Ukraine, farther from the Russian border.
Passengers whose flight was canceled are asked to contact the Lufthansa Service Center or their travel agent.
Earlier last week, the Dutch company KLM also announced the suspension of all its flights to Ukraine.
