LONDON, Feb 24 (Reuters) – Russian airline Aeroflot was given a ban on flying to the UK on Thursday after President Vladimir Putin ordered an invasion of Ukraine.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the ban in Parliament and the UK Civil Aviation Authority said it had suspended Aeroflot’s foreign airline permit.
“This means that Aeroflot will not be able to operate flights to the UK until further notice,” the UK Civil Aviation Authority said.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said he had signed the restrictions barring all scheduled Russian airlines from entering British airspace.
