BERLIN, April 03, /ITAR-TASS/. European Aviation Safety Agency has issued a recommendation to international airlines to avoid flights over Crimea.
EASA, which is headquartered in Cologne, said in a statement Thursday that was calling the airlines’ attention to the possible “existence of serious risks to the safety of international civil flights” in and around Simferopol flight information region.
The statement says EASA, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) recommend to circumnavigate the region by using accessible bypass routes.
EASA also says the notice was issued pending a recent publication by Russia of air navigation notifications on a change of the Simferopol region of flight information, which has been located in Ukraine’s zone of responsibility until a recent reunification of Crimea with Russia.
Itar-Tass reported earlier that the Russian Federal Service for Civil Aviation (Rosaviatsiya) had drafted all the necessary notifications for ICAO on changes in the sovereign status of the Simferopol International Airport and the airspace over the Crimean Peninsula.
