The Wall Street Journal: Biden announces ban of Russian airlines from U.S. airspace

0

The U.S. government is expected to ban Russian aircraft from American airspace, broadening aviation restrictions as the West expands sanctions over the war in Ukraine, according to people familiar with the matter.

An order barring Russian-owned and -operated aircraft from U.S. airspace is expected to be issued as soon as within the next 24 hours, said some of the people.

The U.S. move would follow earlier prohibitions by European and Canadian authorities. The restrictions, which Russia has retaliated against by issuing a similar ban on European flights, have disrupted airline flight plans as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine escalates.
