Finnair resumes flights over West-Ukrainian airspace, many international airlines already use the airspace
August 26 - 9:30 UTC
Finnair resumes the use of West Ukrainian airspace for some of its flights as of August 27. Several European airlines already use West Ukrainian airspace and there have been no restrictions in the use of the airspace in West Ukraine.
Finnair may use West Ukrainian airspace for example on its flights to Bulgaria, Israel, Greece, Cyprus, Turkey, Eastern Europe and Southern Europe, when it is feasible, taking into account weather conditions and other factors impacting the choice of flight routes.
Finnair adheres to the guidance of Eurocontrol, European Aviation Safety Agency and local authorities when choosing its flights routes in Europe.There are still flight restrictions in the Crimean area and in Eastern Ukraine, and Finnair has avoided the use of airspace in these areas since this spring. Flight restriction areas over these conflict areas have built-in safety marginal and they are thus considerably larger than the crisis areas.
