AMMAN — In light of the tensions between Russia and the Ukraine, the Kingdom’s airlines can request permission to operate flights from the Ukrainian capital and Amman, according to Chairman of the Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission Haitham Misto.اضافة اعلان

The Kingdom’s airlines do not operate regular flights between Amman and Kyiv, Misto said, according to Khaberni News.

A Ukrainian airline company does operate flights between the two cities on a weekly basis, and any Jordanian airline can operate charter flights upon request, under an agreement signed between Jordan and Ukraine.

The agency has not received any requests to that effect to date, Misto said, adding that “a decision to operate such flights will be based on travelers’ demand and in coordination with travel agencies.”

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates on Saturday issued a travel advisory to Jordanians, urging them to avoid traveling to Ukraine given the latest geopolitical developments.

The ministry’s move came after the US and a number of European countries asked their diplomats and citizens to leave Ukraine.
