Due to the “unstable military-political situation” in Israel, the Federal Air Transport Agency has introduced restrictions on night flights to the country from Russian airports. The measure is introduced “until further notice”.
A message about this is posted on the official website of the department. The restrictions came into force on October 8 at 03:00 Moscow time. The press service of the Federal Air Transport Agency did not specify what time is considered night.
According to information from several airlines (for example), night flights include flights that operate from 22:00 to 06:00. In addition, according to the Labor Code of the Russian Federation, the hours from 22:00 to 06:00 are considered night hours.
“Airlines have been instructed to strictly comply with Federal Aviation Regulations and provide passengers on delayed flights with all necessary services, as well as return and exchange tickets without penalties,” the department said in a statement.
To resolve all issues, the department recommends contacting Red Wings and Azimuth airlines directly. Red Wings has already announced a temporary reduction of its flight schedule to and from Tel Aviv, as well as the transfer of flights.
