Russian Airlines Cancel Czech Flights Over Route Dispute
At least three Russian airlines have canceled most of their Tuesday flights to the Czech Republic over what they said was the country’s decision to revoke flight permissions to and from Prague.
The flagship carrier Aeroflot and Ural Airlines are the only Russian airlines that perform direct flights to and from Prague. Czech Airlines performs return flights to and from Moscow twice a day.
Czech Republic had taken the step after Moscow declined to approve a trans-Siberian flight route for Czech Airlines from Prague to Seoul.
