The Ministry of Infrastructure has confirmed the decision by the European Aviation Safety Agency to carry out flights over Crimea, the Deputy Infrastructure Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Omeljan wrote on Facebook.

- We have regained our right to control one of the major air corridors for the transit of aircraft over Ukrainian Crimea. This is not only a political victory, but also an economic one! Th profit of "Aeroruh" will grow significantly. We have been working on it over a year, wrote Omeljan.

Today, February 18, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) recommended that carriers consider resuming flights over Crimea. The Agency came to the point that currently the airlines have fewer risks associated with Russia’s occupation of Crimea. At the same time, the flights of the foreign companies will be co-ordinated and controlled by air traffic control service of Ukraine.
