russia bans british airlines

Russia’s state civil aviation regulator said on Friday that British airlines are no longer allowed to land at its airports or cross its airspace.

This follows London’s ban of flights operated by Russian flag carrier Aeroflot following the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

Russia’s aviation authority, Rosaviatsia, said in a statement that the use of Russian airspace for flights of aircraft owned, leased, or operated by organizations based in the UK has been restricted. According to the statement, the decision was taken “in response to unfriendly decisions by the UK aviation authorities”.

Moscow time (11:00 a.m. GMT) is when the ban takes effect, which also covers flights transiting through Russian airspace.

It said the decision was taken “as a response to unfriendly decisions of the UK aviation authorities”.
