Ukraine has banned the transit of Russian airlines for flights


Russian air carriers banned from flying over the territory of Ukraine.

Starting today, the Ukrainian authorities have prohibited Russian aircraft operators from carrying out transit flights through the territory of Ukraine, while the official reason for the ban on air travel is called “opposition to Russian aggression”.

However, as the Russian authorities have previously stated, the closure of Ukraine’s airspace for Russian aircraft does not actually affect the activities of air carriers, since 80-85% of all flights fly around this country, and the adjustment of the remaining 15-20% is unlikely to affect cost of air tickets or will lead to negative consequences for airlines.

It is necessary to clarify that with October 25 2015 years, Ukraine has banned Russian airlines to carry out flights on its territory, and due to the lack of proper reasons, Russia has imposed against the airlines of Ukraine similar measures.
