Israeli airlines to increase repatriation flights to Ukraine as insurance companies halt coverage.

A number of Israeli airlines are increasing flights to Ukraine over the next few days to help Israeli nationals evacuate the area ahead of a possible Russian invasion. EL AL has scheduled a flight for Monday from Kiev and has confirmed it will operate additional flights as required. 

Two repatriation flights have been scheduled by Arkia on Monday and Tuesday with more planned if the need arises. Israir has said it will offer a flight from Kiev on Monday, with others planned. 

Many other airlines are cancelling flights or rerouting them as insurance companies will cease to cover aircraft flying in Ukrainian airspace from tonight. 

Ukraine’s State Air Traffic Services Enterprise issued a notice to airlines warning against flying over the Black Sea,  as safety could not be guaranteed.
