These airlines can only enter Ukrainian airspace after receiving a permit.
The Ukrainian State Aviation Service is implementing a special fight regime for Russian airlines “Transaero” and “Aeroflot – Russian Airlines” on transit flights from Russia over Ukraine.
According to the Ukrainian Ministry of Infrastructure press service, such limitations have to do with “Transaero” and “Aeroflot” airlines making transit flights over Ukraine between Russia and Bulgaria, Israel, Turkey, Egypt and Greece.
Henceforth these airlines can only enter Ukrainian airspace after receiving a permit from the Ukrainian State Aviation Service for every individual flight.
“The measures that are being taken will allow to provide a sufficient level of air security by establishing the rules of transit over Ukraine for the airlines that neglect international flight rules in the closed airspace over the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the closed airport of Simferopol,” explained the Ministry of Infrastructure press service.
The Ministry also reminded that the airspace over the ATO zone is completely closed, as well as Crimean airports, and the safety of transit flights over other Ukrainian territory is fully under the control of the Ukrainian Air Transportation Service.
