MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian air carriers Aeroflot and S7 have changed their air routes running south. Both companies have been performing flights bypassing Ukraine's air space, representatives for both companies told Itar-Tass.

According to data provided by FlightRadar 24, which monitors aviation flights, by 15:00 Moscow time (11:00 GMT) Thursday two Aeroflot flights — SU-2441 Antalya-Moscow and SU2137 Istanbul-Moscow, had been following longer air routes to bypass the air space of Ukraine.

Aeroflot flight SU-1821 Simferopol-Moscow was delayed for twenty minutes, took off at 2.32 pm Moscow time and continued the flight, bypassing Ukraine's air space as well.

Flights by the S7 air carrier to Anapa (1123) and Simferopol (165), which normally fly over part of Ukraine's territory, have bypassed Ukraine on Thursday as well.

“The air carrier is entitled to use any official air route for its flights,” Aeroflot reported on its official account in Twitter.

Other Russian air carriers have still been using previous air routes across the territory of Ukraine.
