Austria is going to lift restrictions on air traffic with Russia on November 9 in response to Moscow’s step, which was announced by the State Secretary of the Ministry of Climate Protection, Ecology, Energy, Transport, Innovation and Technology of Austria Magnus Brunner.
According to Brunner, last year’s restrictions due to COVID-19 demonstrated the importance of maintaining air traffic in difficult times. In this regard, he thanked the Ministry of Transport of Russia for the good cooperation. As reminded, Brunner quite often expressed support for the resumption of air traffic between Austria and Russia.
“On November 9, all restrictions on flights between Austria and Russia from the Russian side will be lifted. Austria also removes mutual restrictions,” Brunner specified.
Also, he called it important to resume normal air traffic between the two countries, taking into account the relevant sanitary norms and rules of entry. This he considers crucial not only for the aviation sector but also for the revival of economic and social relations.
“It’s time to regain the trust of passengers. We must show that reliable flights between Austria and Russia can be provided,” Brunner said.
