About 230 Ukrainian citizens are expected to arrive in Regina on Monday evening aboard a humanitarian flight from Poland.
The provincial government said the nine-hour flight from Warsaw, the Polish capital, is expected to arrive at 5:05 p.m. CST Monday, meeting the provincial immigration minister's target date.
The passengers are expected to spend about three to four hours passing through customs before leaving the airport.
Provincial and local officials, including Regina Mayor Sandra Masters and Terry Dennis, the legislative secretary for Saskatchewan-Ukraine relations and Saskatchewan Party MLA for Canora-Pelly, are expected to be on hand.
In mid-June, Jeremy Harrison, provincial minister of immigration and career training, said he wants the transition process for evacuees arriving from the to be "seamless and straightforward."
"These folks have suffered really overwhelming circumstances both in Ukraine and then coming halfway around the world," he said.
Media are not expected to have an opportunity to speak with passengers at the airport Monday night.
