MOSCOW, October 29. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsia) has submitted its offer to continue bilateral consultations on resuming flight connection to Ukraine’s State Aviation Service, the Russian agency reported on Thursday.
In late September, Ukraine’s cabinet took a decision to ban all flights to the country by Russian air companies. Ukraine’s State Aviation Service started to inform Russian airlines, which are on the sanctions list, that they would not receive permission for making flights to Ukrainian cities from October 25, 2015. Ukraine also banned Russian air companies’ transit flights via Ukraine if they carry goods of defense or dual purpose or Russian manpower. Russia took countermeasures.
On October 23, Ukraine’s State Aviation Service and Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency held technical consultations on air travel in Brussels. The Russian side suggested that the decisions made earlier should be revoked, however, the sides failed to come to a compromise.
As was reported earlier some Ukrainian air carriers turned to Rosaviatsia for resuming regular flight connection between the two countries.
"Sharing airlines’ concern and taking into account absence of any feedback from the Ukrainian side after the meeting on October 23, 2015 Rosaviatsia has submitted a letter on October 28, 2015 to Ukraine’s State Aviation Service delivering its offer and expressing readiness to continue the dialogue for the purpose of resuming flight connection between Russia and Ukraine on the basis of international aviation legislation and the current intergovernmental Agreement on flight connection and cooperation in the aviation field from January 12, 1994," Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency reported.
