It is also interesting to note that Japanese airlines are not impacted. Example: JAL44
JAL44 now goes westbound, adding about 4-5 hours to its flight time.
Interesting / related to flight pattern in EU -- PBD263 on March 2, 2022 -- but wonder if similar flight patterns would evolve here and elsewhere. Also wonder if EU would start rejecting any flight entering EU airspace from Russian airspace regardless of origin of flight? I.e. thought here is to level the playing field or rather the flight routes of planes from countries not barred from Russian airspce...?
Hopefully the airport is ratcheting up services now. They need to make sure they have extra jet fuel available on very short notice. Maybe get building extra jet fuel storage tanks?
Should be temporary only. Once when Putin has been removed and everything went to quiet normal, planes will go the direkt route
Your definition of "temporary" is???? Days, Weeks, Months, Years?????
I guess technically, just about everything is temporary then. ;) I also don't anticipate this being over particularly soon either, but hopefully I'm wrong on that.
I would not count on that.
