MOSCOW, August 24 (Itar-Tass) — Russian civil aviation authorities will restrict access to the airspace around the city of Vladivostok in the days of the summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation forum /APEC/ that will be held from September 6 through to September 10, the Federal Agency for Air Transport /Rosaviatsiya/ said in a report Friday.
Restrictions will affect an area 100 kilometers around the city and the altitudes of up to 8 kilometers.
Rosaviatsiya says the measure will not have any impact on both regular and chartered international and domestic flights, either passenger or cargo ones.
Also, the restrictions do not apply to the flights performed in connection with search and rescue operations or assistance to elimination of the aftermath of natural calamities or manmade accidents.
Rosaviatsiya officials indicate that a big number of heads of state and/or government and representatives of the international political and economic elite are expected to arrive in Vladivostok for attending the summit.
Air control services in Russia’s Far East will give priority to the flights carrying the participants in and guests of the summit.
The report stressed Rosaviatsiya’s rich experience in providing assistance to international events like the forthcoming summit and underlined the readiness to ensure security and regularity of flights in the course of that top-level global conference.
