Uzbekistan continues flights with Belarus

UzAirways reported that it does not plan to terminate flights with Belarus. According to the air carrier, regular flights on the route "Tashkent - Minsk - Tashkent" will be operated in a regular mode.

Following the discussion of the incident with the emergency landing of the Rynair aircraft in Minsk on May 23, the leaders of the European Union decided to ban flights of Belarusian aircraft in the European airspace.

They also called for new sanctions on the Republic of Belarus to be adopted as soon as possible in connection with the incident. Now their solution needs technical approval at the ministerial level.

Moreover, the EU recommended that European airlines avoid flying over Belarus.
