An official source at Fujairah International Airport denied social media rumours that a plane carrying the Ukrainian president landed in the UAE.
He said a Ukrainian plane had made an emergency landing at the airport following a technical snag.
The source added that the plane carried a Ukrainian businessman who routinely travels to the UAE on business. It was heading to Dubai airport, but changed direction due to fog.
“The situation was handled properly and the safety of the plane and passengers [was] ensured,” the source said.
