Turkish Airports Will Not Accept Russian Airlines

Havaş, which operates aircraft at Turkish airports, has warned that it will stop accepting more than 170 Boeings from Russian airlines due to US sanctions.

The Russian RBC writes about this with reference to the letter of the head of Havaş, Mete Erna, sent to counterparties on January 31. The list of aircraft attached to Erna’s letter says that service may be denied mainly American-made Boeing aircraft, as well as several European Airbus liners.

Havaş has advised Russian airlines to plan flights to Turkey only with aircraft containing less than 25% US-made parts, as these are the only aircraft it is allowed to operate.

A total of 170 ships of Russian airlines, 7 Belarusian and 4 Iranian were included in the list. The largest operator of these aircraft is Aeroflot.

In addition, the list includes aircraft of AirBridge Cargo, Azur Air, I Fly, Pegas Fly, Pobeda, Rossiya, S7, Utair, Ural Airlines, Red Wings, Nordwind and Yamal.

The Havaş letter also mentions the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Gulfstream G650 business jets, which according to the company belong to Roman Abramovich.

Russian airlines are able to fly to only eight countries in the world – Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, UAE, Tajikistan, Turkey and Uzbekistan.
