Ukraine’s International Airlines (UIA) have no intentions to resume flights to Russia, said the company’s press secretary Yevhenia Satska (TASS).   

“Due to Russia’s sanctions against Ukrainian airline carriers, we ceased our flights to Russia, too. There are currently no prospects or signs of resuming these flights. So we don’t plan any flights to Russia at least for the summer period of 2016”, Satska said.   

Since October 2015, the air traffic between Russia and Ukraine ceased. In November 2015, the Ukrainian government banned all transit flights for all Russian airlines in Ukraine's airspace. 29 Russian and 2 Crimean air companies are on the sanctions’ list of the Ukrainian side. In response to Ukrainian sanctions, Russia closed its sky for Ukrainian airline carriers. By various estimates, the losses from Russian sanctions in this area total up to EUR 10 million.
