More and more countries are closing their airspace to Russian aircraft. And Finland and Romania announced, on Sunday morning, that they are taking this measure in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. A little later, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Ireland and Scandinavia also followed suit.

So Russian planes flying west have to take an increasingly larger turn. Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom and Sweden close their airspace to Russian aircraft. This procedure is not yet valid everywhere.

Moscow also closed its airspace to a number of foreign airlines. The Swiss Swiss will continue their flights to Russia for the time being. The carrier provides regular communication and continues to use Russian airspace. Swiss parent company Lufthansa and sister company Austrian Airlines will not use Russian airspace for at least a week.
