Russian aircraft shut out of global airspace

1, Mar 2022 | nepaltraveller.com

All planes that are Russian-owned, Russian-registered and Russian-controlled including private jets will be unable to land in, take off or fly over these countries' airspace

US, UK, the European Union, Australia and Canada have imposed a ban on Russian planes and aviation in response to the invasion of Ukraine. All planes that are Russian-owned, Russian-registered and Russian-controlled including private jets will be unable to land in, take off or fly over these countries' airspace. 

Russian flag-carrier Aeroflot has announced that it has cancelled all flights to European destinations until further notice and S7 airlines have cancelled flights to Europe at least until March 13. In addition to Russian carriers affecting this, other aircraft carriers and airlines have adjusted to this new development. 

Commercial airlines are now avoiding airspace between Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and Russia. US's Delta Air Lines have said that it will be suspending a flight booking agreement with Aeroflot. Virgin Atlantic has noted that avoiding the above-mentioned airspaces would add about 15 minutes to an hour to its flights between UK and India and Pakistan. Qantas has also started using a longer route for its direct flight between Darwin and London.
