The Ministry of transport has removed restrictions on flights of the Georgian airline “Georgian Airways”. This decision was a response to the actions of the Georgian authorities, which, in turn, coordinated the flights of the Russian airline “Ural airlines” airport “Zhukovskiy”, reports “Interfax” with reference to the representative office.

“Restrictions have already been removed, the permissions are restored. Half an hour ago got the restoration permits,” – said the Deputy General Director of “Georgian airlines” Robert Oganesyan, quoted by “RIA Novosti”.

The conflict situation between Russia and Georgia in the air space arose after the Russian side imposed a ban on Charter flights of “Georgian Airways” in response to a refusal for “the Ural airlines” to fly to Georgia from the “Zhukovsky”. The Georgian side then explained their actions by the fact that they consider the airport of Zhukovsky, Moscow.

Meanwhile, Russia is positioning itself “Zhukovsky” as a regional airport that takes away the limitations of intergovernmental agreements on the number of shipments and international flights, which apply to the Moscow airports Vnukovo, Sheremetyevo and Domodedovo.
