Temporary int'l flight clearance procedure approved - Rosaviatsiya

MOSCOW. March 19 (Interfax) - A temporary procedure has been approved to clear airlines for international passenger and cargo flights, the Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) said.

"The interagency commission clearing airlines for international passenger and cargo flights has approved a temporary procedure so that the commission could authorize the temporary transfer of clearance for international air transportation of passengers and/or cargo from one carrier to another," Rosaviatsiya said.

"The temporary procedure has been developed to increase transport accessibility and mobility of the population of the Russian Federation and to preserve 'air corridors' between Russia and other countries over the period of restrictive measures imposed by foreign nations for political reasons," it said.

The procedure will stay in effect until decisions are made to lift the restrictions, Rosaviatsiya said.
