The Netherlands has just increased the Covid-19 safety risk for the United Kingdom. It's now "very high risk", leading to quarantine at return. Air travel to/from London will thus be minimal the next weeks. New travel advise: https://www.rijksoverheid.nl/actueel/nieuws/2021/06/11/quarantai...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

IATA is not the watchdog / policeman / judge for such incidents. ICAO has to react. And they do so: Montréal, 27 May 2021 – The ICAO Council expressed its strong concern today at the apparent forced diversion of Ryanair Flight FR4978, a commercial passenger aircraft flying in Belarus airspace on Sun...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

How naive are they at IATA? Nothing is going to stop BY from doing this again, apart from not giving the chance. The number of BY citizens who moved to the 3 Baltics has increased significantly, even during the pandemic. I would be very worried if I am an (ex-)BY citizen living in EE/LV/LT, and nee...

Re: Belarus forces diversion to Minsk of Ryanair flight carrying a dissident in order to arrest him

What exactly does ban mean? Or when will it start ... when we see the list of Belavia flights to the European Union today? Is this again a political blah? Their flight to BCN is circling at 34000ft near the border with Poland right now (still within Belarus airspace). https://www.flightradar24.com/...
