The Federal Air Transport Agency has granted permission for two airlines to operate flights from Russia to Turkmenistan. The corresponding order of October 5, 2020 is published on the Agency's website.
According to the official document, the Nordwind Airlines was allowed to fly five times a week on the route Moscow-Ashgabat, and IrAero — seven times a week from St. Petersburg to Ashgabat.
However, admissions can only remain on paper. The Federal Air Transport Agency clarifies that granting access is not a decision to resume flights to these countries, because air traffic with some of them has not yet been restored.
"Admission is the right of the airline, which it will be able to use when resuming flights," the Rosaviatsiya reports.
In total, the Federal Air Transport Agency issued permits for almost 170 international routes
They will take effect after the resumption of air traffic with a particular country.
