Ukraine suspends flights to Belarus

From May 26, Ukrainian airlines and planes are prohibited to carry out flights in the airspace of the Republic of Belarus. The State Border Guard Service will stop registering passengers traveling from Belarus or to Belarus at airport customs checkpoints from 00:00 on May 26. The decision of the Government of Ukraine is conditioned by the forced landing of Ryanair plane in Minsk, which is a violation of the Convention on International Civil Aviation.

Prior to the restriction, direct flights between Belarus and Ukraine were operated by Belarusian state airline Bilavia and Ukrainian air carrier Motor Sich.
