MOCOW, May 7. /TASS/. Moscow airports have resumed flights after a 50-minute break, a source from the Federal Air Transportation Service (Rosaviatsia) told TASS.
"The Moscow air harbor had been closed from 10.30 am until 11.20 am because of a dress rehearsal of the Victory parade. A hundred aircraft units took part in the rehearsal. To ensure safe flights of the parade air squadrons the regulations for civil aviation air corridors had to be changed," Rosviatsia said. Consequently, throughout 50 minutes only transit flights performed at the altitude ranging from 9,000 to 11,000 meters were allowed in the Moscow air space, it said.
All the airline companies had been notified in due time about the changed regulations of air traffic in the Moscow air space to adjust their Moscow flight schedules. The so-called "expectation zones" were ensured for pilots' convenience at the approaches to Moscow, where the flights might have stayed until Moscow airports resumed normal work," Rosaviatsia said. "The same regulations will be in effect in the Moscow air space during the Victory parade on May 9".
