Lufthansa received permission to fly to Moscow and St. Petersburg

German airline Lufthansa announced that it was able to obtain permission from the Russian aviation authorities for flights to Russia planned in June.

“We can confirm that Lufthansa received all the missing permits for flights of its passengers to Russia on Wednesday evening. As a result, we do not expect further cancellations of our flights from Frankfurt to Moscow and St. Petersburg, ”the message received by Kommersant reads.

On what dates the company managed to agree on flights, the press service of the carrier did not specify.

Lufthansa canceled Wednesday’s flights to Moscow (LH1444 / 1445) and St. Petersburg (LH1436 / 1437) on June 2. The carrier’s press service explained that they could not coordinate the arrival of the flight with the Russian aviation authorities.

The representative of the Ministry of Transport of the Federal Republic of Germany Simone Nika told TASS that Germany refused to accept flights to Aeroflot (June 2) and S7 (June 1) aircraft as a retaliatory measure. In turn, the head of the Federal Air Transport Agency Alexander Neradko on the sidelines of the SPIEF told reporters that the issue of granting additional permits for flights between Moscow and Germany had been resolved.
