Kiev Borispol airport's operator is to continue handling the flights of troubled Ukrainian carrier AeroSvit as it discusses options for settling the airline's debts.

The airport operator had threatened to stop services to AeroSvit from 9 January in the wake of the bankruptcy filings initiated against the carrier by a court in late December.

AeroSvit is negotiating a restructuring of its debts, and possible pre-payment schemes, with Borispol. As a result, the airport operator states, it is "not suspending" handling to the airline.

Operations by AeroSvit have been experiencing severe disruption after a number of aircraft were impounded at their destinations following the court action.
