For its part, Pegasus Airlines has specified that its routes to Russia will remain suspended from March 13 to 27. The Turkish company specifies that the measure is linked to “operational risks” posed by major sanctions imposed by Brussels against Russian airspace.
As a result of Western sanctions, the insurance of air carriers operating in Russia is currently not valid. To continue these activities, it is necessary to take advantage of a state guarantee that Israel has made for its companies providing flights to Russia.
The European Union, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States suspended their flights to this destination and closed their airspace to Russian aircraft, with Russia abruptly cutting itself off most of its air links. But other countries such as Turkey, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates still maintain air links to and from Russia.
