The Zelenskiy government also will ban planes from flying through Belarus airspace to come to Ukraine,
the President’s office has reported. This will only stop Ukrainian airlines that fly to Belarus: Motor Sich with two flights a day from Zaporizhia. Yesterday, airBaltic and Wizz Air detoured around Belarus for their flights from Kyiv to the Baltics. UIA said it was waiting for the government’s formal decision before re-routing its two relevant flights, to Vilnius and to Helsinki. This detour is expected to add 30% to flight times from Kyiv.
