Donetsk Airport temporarily halts all air traffic

KIEV (CIHAN)- Flights to and from the Donetsk airport in eastern Ukraine have been temporarily suspended, an announcement on the website of the airport said Tuesday.

“By order of the State Aviation Administration of Ukraine, the take-off and landing of the aircraft from the Donetsk airport has been temporarily suspended. Current information on the status of flights is available on the online display of the official website,” the statement on the airport’s web-site says.

The online display on the main page of the site shows that all flights are cancelled.

Russia’s largest airline Aeroflot earlier announced it was canceling flights to Kharkiv because it had been denied permission to enter Ukrainian airspace.

Ukraine’s ban on Russian passenger flights to Donetsk and Kharkiv breaches international agreements, but Moscow will not take reciprocal measures, the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency has said.

Local media have reported that Ukrainian aviation authorities said that they did not ban Russian airlines from flying to eastern cities of Kharkiv and Donetsk, but limited transportation along a particular route between Donetsk and Russia.
