Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport will transfer flights to Simferopol, Crimea, to the Federal zone of Terminal D starting April 25, where passengers will be registered on the counters of domestic airlines. The airport said in a statement the decision was made in accordance with Russia’s border service, ATW reported.
Among local carriers, only Aeroflot operates an average of 4X-daily to Simferopol from Sheremetyevo’s Terminal D. Other carriers—such as S7 Airlines, VIM-Avia, Ural Airlines, Transaero and UTair—operate flights to Crimea from Moscow Domodedovo or Vnukovo airports.
Russian airlines are continuing flights to Simferopol despite tensions between the countries, which include disputes on air navigation service rights. Last week, ICAO confirmed Ukraine’s exclusive right to provide air navigation services in international airspace over the Black Sea within the Simferopol flight information region.
