The Federal Air Transport Agency of Russia has given permission to operate flights from Kazan to Ashgabat to Nordwind Airlines (legal name – “North Wind” LLC). This is reported by the website “Turkmenistan: Golden Age” with reference to the order of the Federal Air Transport Agency.
According to an official document, the “North Wind” airline received a permit to fly seven times a week from Kazan to Ashgabat.
Russian airlines also received new permits for regular flights to 19 countries. Russian air carriers received permits for flights to Azerbaijan, Armenia, Albania, Belarus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, Morocco, Moldova, Serbia, Turkmenistan, Croatia, Montenegro, Estonia, Cyprus, Cuba, and the Maldives. In total, the Federal Air Transport Agency issued approvals for almost 300 international routes. The largest number of them are in Cyprus.
Granting an admission is not a decision to resume flights to these countries, because with some of them air traffic has not yet been restored. They will take effect after the resumption of air traffic with a specific country.
