BA suspends flights to Moscow

British Airways said it had suspended flights to Moscow, and warned customers that some flights to destinations east of Russia would now take longer due to rerouting, reports our transport correspondent Gwyn Topham.

It operated to the Russian capital three times a week but currently did not fly to any other destinations in Russia or Ukraine – nor used Ukrainian airspace.

However, the move will increase escalating fuel costs and pose more headaches for the national carrier’s long-haul services.

A spokesperson said: “We have suspended our flights to Moscow and also the use of Russian airspace, following the confirmation of Russian government restrictions.

“We apologise for the inconvenience but this is clearly a matter beyond our control. We are notifying customers on cancelled services and are offering a full refund.

“We will continue to monitor the situation closely.”
