Belarus airlines – basically Belavia’s jets – are banned from landing in the EU or overflying EU airspace,

 under an EU decision that took effect Saturday. This coming weekend, more Belarus sanctions, possibly a ban on bond purchases, are to be discussed at a meeting in Cornwall, England of the G7 – US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the EU, Reuters reports.

On Saturday, Ukraine banned over flights by planes from Belarus

. Belavia, the state airline, says this ban adds 30-90 minutes to its flights south – to Israel, Turkey and Egypt, reports Avianews. The ban prompted Belavia to drop its flights to Moldova and Hungary as impractical. Due to over flight bans by Ukraine and EU nations, Belavia can now only fly east, to Russia.
