England's Wayne Rooney in action with Ukraine's Bohdan Butko
English football fans are snapping up flights to the continent in the hope of watching their team triumph against Italy in the quarter finals of Euro 2012.
Supporters are advised to book plane tickets and
travel insurance as soon as possible as airlines are reporting huge interest in flight to Ukraine's capital Kiev from fans keen to see Sunday's game live.
British Airways said larger planes than usual would be servicing this destination while demand was high.
A spokeswoman said: "Since England won their group (by beating Ukraine on Tuesday) we've seen an increase in bookings to Kiev from fans eager to support the team and help them get to the next stage.
"In response we've put larger aircraft on to the route to make more seats available to fans."
Meanwhile, the prospect of a semi-final against Germany (if England are successful against Italy) is enticing more confident fans to book tickets to Poland for next Thursday.
