Recent reports in Israel have come out that the Ministry of Health is trying very hard to cancel the annual charter flights to Uman Rosh Hashana in fear of Israelis returning with the virus. This will lead to a shortage of flights in hopes that many people won’t be able to make it to Uman. They will be presenting their claims to higher officials in the Israeli gov’t in the coming days. For now, there are still many ways to get to the Ukraine with regular flights through countries that will be listed below.
In the past week, a number of airlines have announced that they will be resuming flights to and from Israel with restrictions and the list is getting longer every day. Some flights will require wearing masks for the duration of the flight and some will require a negative Corona test just to board.
Bulgaria, for example, has announced that they will be allowing Israelis into the country after showing a Corona test with a negative result. This test can be done 3 days before boarding the flight. There will soon be flights from Bulgaria to Ukraine. Alitalia has also announced that they will be resuming four daily flights between Rome and Tel Aviv in early September. Ukraine and Italy signed on an agreement last week to resume many flights between their countries in the coming weeks. These are all good ways to get to Ukraine during COVID 19 when there will be a shortage of flights. Other countries that have connecting flights to Ukraine from Israel are Egypt, Belarus and Turkey.
