US airlines ask Congress to ban competitors from flying over Russia

Another clear example of how Western countries are suffering from the anti-Russian restrictions they have introduced has been demonstrated by US airlines. According to the New York Times, US airlines have asked Congress to ban foreign airlines from flying over Russia.

It’s no secret that every restrictive measure has a downside. Thus, American airlines, having lost their polar routes, were forced to modify their transpacific flight plans and reduce the number of passengers and cargo. In addition, they had to postpone the launch of more than ten planned routes to Mumbai, Tokyo, Seoul and other cities.

Meanwhile, air carriers from countries that have not joined anti-Russian sanctions are transporting passengers much faster and cheaper. US airlines have deemed this state of affairs unjust and have asked their Congress to ban all airlines from flying over Russian airspace.

US air carriers are demanding that authorities force airlines from other countries to fly the same routes as Americans.

US authorities should generally prohibit planes of foreign companies from taking off, landing and transiting through the country’s airports.

Marley Collier, spokesperson for Airlines for America, said in a statement.

Simply put, the United States believes that every other country in the world should suffer the same losses it suffers from those it introduced.
