The European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has published details of the implementation in the aviation sector of the restrictive measures imposed by the European Union against Russia following its military invasion of Ukraine.
EASA says the published Notice to Stakeholders has the intent to inform all interested parties in the aviation sector of the actions taken by EASA to implement these restrictive measures with respect to EASA applicants and certificate holders. The notice also provides further information on the impact of those restrictive measures on some of the rights and obligations of the aviation undertakings under the aviation safety rules falling under the scope of Regulation (EU) 2018/1139.
The European Union adopted a comprehensive set of restrictive measures in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. Those measures relate also to the aviation sector and contain a comprehensive ban on the export of goods and technology suited for use in aviation and the prohibition of provision of technical assistance and other related services in relation to aviation goods and technology to persons, entities or bodies in Russia or for use in Russia. The measures adopted by the EU also ban Russia’s air carriers and aircraft from flying into, over or out of the territory of the EU.
This dedicated area on the EASA website provides information for the aviation community about the impacts of those restrictive measures on the activities regulated under the aviation safety rules falling under Regulation (EU) 2018/1139. It also provides information about the actions taken by EASA in implementation of the restrictive measures and provides answers to some of the frequently asked questions. The information contained on this website is of a technical nature and complements the information already available on the websites of European Institutions.
This is complemented by a detailed list of EASA certificates and which have been suspended in application of those restrictive measures. That list can be found on EASA’s website.
