Kyrgyzstan is preparing for the resumption of international flights, which was canceled amid coronavirus pandemic, the country's headquarters for the fight against coronavirus said on Thursday.


Airports in Kyrgyzstan are planned to be ready for international flights from June 15 and the resumption of international flights will be carried out by a separate decision of the country's government, the statement said.

The headquarters noted that foreign and domestic airlines should provide their plans about when and how many times they will carry out their flights.

The health authorities of Kyrgyzstan also plan to take additional sanitary and quarantine measures at the airports to prepare for the resumption of international flights.
