In this post we will compile all information on impacts of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on civil aviation around the world. Check back for continuing updates as developments occur.

Closed airspace around Ukraine

Flights avoiding Ukrainian airspace

Ukrainian airspace is closed to all civil flights as of 24 February. Russia issued its own NOTAM closing its western airspace bordering the Ukrainian border. Ukrainian neighbor Moldova has also closed its airspace to all but essential traffic. A number of countries have also issued NOTAMS prohibiting their airlines from overflying Ukrainian airspace as an extra layer of regulatory protection.

European Union and other states close their airspace to Russian

The United Kingdom issued a NOTAM on 24 February (see below) barring Russian airlines and any flights associated with a Russian person from operating in UK airspace or to UK airports, with the exception of transatlantic overflights. Since then the European Union, Canada, and other states have banned flights by Russian aircraft, airlines, or ‘persons associated with Russia.’ See below for a complete list of states that now prohibit Russian flights.

 

Russia reciprocates by banning flights in its airspace

Russia has now banned flights from Russian airspace by the countries that have banned Russian flights, affecting service to Russian destinations as well as overflights, including British Airways and Virgin Atlantic service to India. Below is an example of the re-routing for a BA flight from Delhi to London. Airlines like Finnair are acutely affected by a ban from Russian airspace

Russian flights at Kaliningrad

Even though surrounding countries have closed their airspace to Russian aircraft, flights at  Kaliningrad are able to operate due to the legal definition of national airspace. By operating through the narrow corridor that is technically international airspace (more than 12 nautical miles beyond the coastal baseline—with some caveats), flights can continue.
