Understand the impact of the Ukraine conflict from a cross-sector perspective with the Global Data Executive Briefing: Ukraine Conflict

Russia’s federal air transport agency, Rosaviatsiya, has extended a flight ban for several airports in central and southern Russia until 6 June over safety issues amid the Ukraine conflict, Interfax reported.

As a result, flights to Elista, Gelendzhik, Krasnodar, Kursk, Lipetsk, Rostov-on-Don, Anapa, Belgorod, Bryansk, Voronezh and Simferopol have been temporarily banned.

In a statement, Rosaviatsiya said: “The regime of temporary restriction on flights to 11 Russian airports has been prolonged until 3:45am Moscow time on June 6, 2022.”

Operations at the country’s other airports will reportedly continue without any prohibitions.

This marks the eighth time the temporary flight restriction on domestic services at the airports has been extended, stated AeroTime Hub. The ban was first imposed following Russia’s military attack on Ukraine on 24 February.

According to the publication, the Russian aviation regulator advised local airlines to divert flights to five alternative airports, namely Sochi (AER), Volgograd (VOG), Mineralnye Vody (MRV), Stavropol (STW) and Moscow (DME).  

As of now, Russian airlines have been authorised to offer domestic passenger services. They can also deliver outbound services to countries that have not sanctioned Russia for its invasion of Ukraine. 

Earlier this week, Chinese authorities blocked Boeing and Airbus aircraft of Russian carriers from its airspace for failing to offer evidence that imported aircraft were deregistered abroad.
