Russia and the EU battle over airline sanctions and rights

Russian’s lone economy airline Dobrolet, which was created by the national airline Aeroflot, has suspended flights due to the effects of EU sanctions. The decision was taken after leasing contracts were suspended and German partners refused to service Dobrolet aircraft.

Russia’s foreign and transportation ministries are discussing placing restrictions on European airlines flying to Asia.

A ban on European airlines could affect British Airways, Lufthansa and Air France, while Russia’s Aeroflot could lose out on around $300m each year in the form of overflight fees.
