MOSCOW, April 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Crimea’s Simferopol flight control center will assume control of air traffic on the peninsula from 10am Moscow time (GMT+4) on Thursday, Russian state air traffic corporation told ITAR-TASS.
“Specific air navigation information was brought to air space users of domestic and foreign air companies,” an official of the Russian air traffic corporation said.
In his words, air traffic services are rendered within frontiers of air space which was previously under management of Simferopol air control center (over neutral waters of the Black Sea and the Russian Republic of Crimea).
“Air traffic services will be provided according to international standards and recommended practice of the International Civil Aviation Organisation with use of the same radio-technical equipment and personnel that were used in flight control before,” the state corporation said.
It was reported on Wednesday that European Air Traffic Control services recommended to follow instructions of Ukrainian, Bulgarian, Romanian and Turkish air traffic controllers in flights in the Russian Republic of Crimea. Russian air companies are controlled by Russian air traffic controllers in flights in Crimea, because Crimea and its air zone is Russian territory. It was reported earlier that a separate local air navigation company had been set up in Crimea after the March 16 referendum and Crimean air traffic controllers passed to work there from Ukraviaruh.
