This text copies previously issued NOTAM, banning passenger flights except with Russian and CIS citizens onboard, only extending its validity until 30JUN. Apparently there is an international pax flights ban, except for overflight, cargo, ferry and transit/tech stop flights. General aviation flights are allowed to overfly, cargo, ferry, transit and tech-stop.

Airports remain open, but some airports have been closed by local authorities. These are:


UHMD Provideniya (until 30JUN)

UHMA Anadyr (until 30JUN)

UWSG Saratov (until 30JUN)


We sincerely believe this is the last time restrictions are extended and already in June consulates across the globe will resume issuing visas and international operations will resume as well.
