28.11.14 Ukraine’s State Aviation Administration without giving a reason has banned Russian airlines flights on the route Moscow – Kharkiv and Moscow – Dnepropetrovsk. The affected airlines are Aeroflot, Transaero, UTair, UTair-Ukraine and Dniproavia. Thus the permission to perform operations on these routes issued by Ukraine’s State Aviation Administration on 24.10.14 and 22.214.171.124 has been withdrawn.
Due to this fact Aeroflot was forced to cancel a previously scheduled winter season 14/15 flights:
- SU1810/1811 and SU1838/1839 Sheremetyevo – Kharkiv – Sheremetyevo;
- SU1816/1817 Sheremetyevo – Dnepropetrovsk – Sheremetyevo.
Passengers of canceled flights are able to return their tickets without penalties as well as to reroute for Aeroflot flights to/from Kiev. For those tickets which were issued by third parties it is possible to reroute to any point of European part of the Russian Federation upon condition that passengers – citizens of the other countries have relevant visas.
