This was announced to the Ukrinform agency by the Ukrainian Consul in Antalya, Vyacheslav Khomenko, who met tourists at the airport.
“321 passengers flew in with two SkyUp flights, the JoinUp tour operator, from Zaporozhye and Kharkov. All security measures at the airport were observed, not a single person with signs of illness was present,” the diplomat said.
According to him, after the passport control procedure and health check, all Ukrainians arrived went to hotels.
A few more flights are expected from Kiev, as well as one from Odessa.
