KIEV, October 25. /TASS/. Ukraine plans to increase the number of flights by western airlines to Moscow along encircling routes through European cities, General Director of Ukraine’s Borispol International Airport Yevgeny Dikhne said on Sunday.
The statement comes after Kiev banned flights by Russian airlines to Ukraine from October 25. In response, Moscow imposed a ban on the flights by Ukrainian airlines to Russia from the same day.
"Airlines are now working out compensation mechanisms as to how replace the shortage that has emerged on the market," he said.
"I believe this will achieved through an increase in the number of flights per week and the use of larger-capacity airliners," he added.
Air communication with Russia has been stopped from October 25 on Kiev’s initiative. Ukraine has imposed a ban on all of Russian airlines for flights in the Ukrainian airspace, including both direct and transit flights.
