The aviation authorities of Russia and the United Arab Emirates on Saturday evening, March 27, agreed on the conditions for the implementation of charter passenger-and-freight flights between the countries. This is reported by TASS with reference to a source in one of the airlines.
According to the interlocutor of the agency, the Federal Air Transport Agency has issued permits for Arab air carriers for all flights that they requested.
“Therefore, the UAE aviation authorities have confirmed permits for Russian airlines,” he summed up.
At the same time, Pobeda Airlines, which earlier on Saturday warned customers about possible changes in the flight schedule to the UAE, told the agency that they received permission to perform a flight from Moscow to Dubai on Sunday, March 28.
Earlier on Saturday, it was reported that charter passenger flights from Moscow and St. Petersburg to the UAE cities could be canceled from March 28 due to disagreements between the aviation authorities of the two countries.
Flights with the UAE were resumed in September 2020. In addition to regular flights, there are also passenger-and-freight flights, which, in addition to cargo, can also carry passengers who are allowed to enter the host country.
