In particular, they worked out the scheduled routes (from Boryspil international airport to central Kyiv and from the centre to the Olympic stadium), share information on the air and inform the duty unit and situational centres whose work is aimed at collecting, summarizing and analysing information about the situation at the airport and terminals, accompany the traffic of people and so on.
