Russian airlines with the relevant licenses have received permits for regular flights to 12 countries, Rosaviation reported.
The Federal Air Transport Agency notes, however, that the decision to issue such permits does not constitute a decision to resume flights on the international routes. This access is the right of the airline to resume flights only when borders are opened.
Russian airlines have been granted access to operate flights to Belarus, Israel, Lebanon, Morocco, Oman, Slovakia, Uzbekistan, Finland, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus and Maldives.
In particular, flights on routes Novosibirsk-Bukhara, Yekaterinburg-Bukhara, Krasnodar-Karshi, Moscow-Navoi, St Petersburg-Nukus, Yekaterinburg-Urgench, St Petersburg-Urgench may be soon resumed.
