As we wrote, by midnight after the UK, Poland, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria had also closed the airspace in front of Russian airlines and planes, so Aeroflot’s European flights will only reach significant destinations from Saturday.
Today, another EU country has joined the ranks after the Czechs, Poles and Bulgarians:
Romania has also decided to close the airspace in front of the Russian planes.
The Romanian government has begun revoking Russia’s flight and landing rights, with the ban coming into effect on Saturday, February 26, from 3 p.m.
Update: In the meantime, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Slovenia have also indicated that they will ban Russian planes from their airspace.
