Liverpool mayor Joe Anderson has confirmed that talks are underway with Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of Kiev, in order to get flights for Liverpool fans sorted out.
On Saturday evening, the Champions League final will be hosted in Kiev, Ukraine. Many Liverpool fans could tell you about the hell they have been through to get accommodation and travel plans mapped out for the massive occasion.
On the club’s official website, a message read: “Flights chartered by World Choice Sports had been set to take supporters to Ukraine, but a dispute between the Widnes-based travel company and the aviation authorities in Kiev over the size of the aircraft has led to the trips being canceled.
“Along with officials from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, Liverpool City Council, UEFA and the authorities in Kiev, Liverpool FC has been endeavouring to resolve the issue since it first came to light and will continue to do so until all avenues have been exhausted.”
Brilliant news! Let’s hope those who have been disappointed get sorted out!! https://t.co/0xf3kRu2Rf

Liverpool’s mayor, Joe Anderson, wrote on Twitter that he is discussing alternative travel plans with the mayor of Kiev and former pro boxer, Vitali Klitschko.
It is pathetic that nearly 1,000 supporters have been left stranded ahead of the biggest football game many of them will remember.
It is, however great to see Liverpool and Kiev coming together to ensure those with tickets are able to get to the final to support the Reds.
For Liverpool, the football team and not the city, this represents an amazing opportunity to confirm their place back with Europe’s elite.
Real Madrid, 13 time winners and back to back champions, stand in their way of continental glory.
Jürgen Klopp will have done his homework as he looks to undo a team with bundles of talent but more than enough flaws.
