The Kaliningrad “Khrabrovo” airport introduced an open sky regime from October 1, as reported by the Federal Air Transport Agency. According to the new rules, foreign companies will be able to fly from an air harbor to other states without landing in their own country.
“From October 1, 2022, the ‘open sky’ mode will be introduced at Kaliningrad Airport. This regime allows foreign airlines to operate flights to/from Kaliningrad using the third, fourth, fifth, and seventh freedoms of airspace,” the message said.
The Federal Air Transport Agency noted that the idea to liberalize air traffic in the region was made by the Governor of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov. As noted in the department, the open sky mode will allow the airport to expand the geography of flights and attract new air carriers. It is specified that the mode was set for two years.
