According to the airline, Aeroflot’s transatlantic flights to and from Moscow to the following destinations are suspended: Cuba (Havana-SU150/151, Varadero-SU154/155); Dominican Republic (Punta Cana-SU156/157).
The same applies to Mexico (Cancun-SU158/159); and the United States (Los Angeles-SU108/109; Miami-SU110/111; New York-SU102/103 and SU124/125; Washington-SU104/105).
Aeroflot informed that the forced refund can be made at the place where the ticket was purchased. It stressed that updated information on other flights on these routes will be published on the airline’s Internet platform and on its official accounts in social networks.
According to the Association of Russian Tour Operators (Atorus), the Russian flag carrier does not include in its sales for the next few days trips to Varadero and Havana, in Cuba; Cancun, in Mexico; nor to the U.S. cities of New York, Los Angeles and Miami.
On Aeroflot’s Internet platform, there are no “available flights” to Varadero until March 27 and to the Cuban capital until March 29, in the case of Cancun until March 27.
Experts point out that given the uncertain situation, the closure of Canadian skies and the low demand for travel in general, flights on the dates that are still available may be cancelled.
The closure of Canadian airspace is part of a broad package of punitive measures taken by the United States, United Kingdom, European Union and other countries over Russia’s military operation in Ukraine since Feb. 24.
