SIMFEROPOL, March 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Passenger flights from Moscow to Simferopol, the capital of Crimea, need now more time to reach the destination because of changes in the route, CrimeaInform reported on Saturday, March 22.
While before it took about 90 minutes to fly from one city to the other, now travel time may exceed two and a half hours. “Planes no longer enter Ukraine’s airspace and fly through Rostov on Don and Anapa and then pass over the Black Sea,” an official at Simferopol’s airport said.
The distance has increased and so has the travel time, he added.
Previously, planes did not go over the sea and flied over Dnepropetrovsk and Kharkov. “Now that a part of the route passes over the sea, we tell the passengers before the flight how to use the life vests,” a flight attendant of one of the Russian airlines said.
