Posted by

The Russian consumer safety watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has sent a list of countries it says meets epidemiological safety requirements in terms of international travel to the Russian Ministry of Transport and Russia’s Federal Air Transport Agency.

Late last week it was reported that the operational headquarters for preventing the spread of coronavirus in Russia supported the proposal of the Transport Ministry, the Federal Air Transport Agency and Aeroflot to resume international air traffic in two stages.

“It is possible to consider these countries as candidates for resuming flights at the first stage,” the statement says. They are the UK, Hungary, Germany, Denmark, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Finland, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, and Sri Lanka.

No decision has yet been made when flights to these countries may continue. Just over a week ago, Sri Lanka said it had indefinitely postponed the opening of its international Ports and Airports to international tourism due to the Coronavirus. Agreements and the protocols of flying will still need to be worked out on a bilateral basis with the countries concerned.
