Russian sanctions


THAJEC

Recommended Posts

Today I read, that Russia is seriously considering the introduction of penalties in the form of disabling flight over their teritory of Siberia.

This restriction should adversely effect the particular flight to Asia with many airlines.

It seems, that getting into the beloved Thailand will become increasingly difficult.

:SoWhat1:

Maybe just a tad more expensive to compensate for the fuel. :-)  Could just head south a little and fly through middle east (for the Europeans). :-)

Most flights from London to Bangkok fly south of Russian airspace so shouldn't be a problem. But more difficult for Finns though!

BA flights to Beijing/Shanghai and Japan would fly over Russian airspace.

 

Flights to Thailand usually don't from the UK.

There have been various reports in press etc today about Russia retaliating for EU sanctions by closing it's airspace to airlines from certain countries. The reports said that this would mean airlines having to fly further, use more fuel and therefore probably put fares up.

 

They mentioned destinations in Asia without being specific. From the UK, it would affect flights to China, Japan etc but not Thailand.

 

Don't worry, it won't change anything for you flying from Oz to TLOS - unless you have a Malaysian pilot :-)

I am sure a direct flight from London goes over the Med, Middle East,Emirates, Arabian Sea....and what seems like a week over India

It's best not to watch the flight progress on the screen on the way back. Already depressed as leaving TLOS, feel like you've been flying forever and it still shows the plane over bloody India!

Perhaps a stop over might be in order.

Mumbai, Kamathipura?

Flying to USA from Russia is over the pole, only TO europe do they need to enter european airspace.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
