Most of the passengers on the flight to Finland were Kosovo nationals


A majority of the 157 passengers who arrived on Saturday at Turku airport in Finland after boarding a plane in Skopje are nationals of Kosovo and Finland and only two are Macedonian nationals, the Health Ministry said Tuesday. Earlier, it was reported that 24 of the 157 passengers tested positive for COVID-19 after undergoing voluntary testing at the Finish airport.

According to the list of passengers, most passengers had Kosovo passports (95 people), 60 passengers had Finish passports and the rest were holders of Macedonian passports (2), Albanian, Bulgarian, Estonian and Swedish.

Data on all passengers in the plane bound for Finland have been examined. Not a single passenger is registered in the database of positive COVID-19 cases in our country, which means they haven’t received an order from the State Sanitary and Health Inspectorate to be put in isolation, the Health Ministry said.
