    BREAKING: China bars Russian airlines with foreign planes 

    Published By:

    BEIJING (AP) – China has barred Russia’s airlines from flying foreign- owned jetliners into it’s airspace, the Russian news outlet RBK reported, after president Vladimir Putin threw the aircrafts ownership into doubt by allowing them to be re-registered in Russia to avoid seizure under sanctions over Moscow’s attack on Ukraine.

    The European Union (EU), home to major aircraft leasing companies, banned the sale or lease of aircraft to Russian carriers in February.  Putin responded by approving the re- registration measure in March, which prompted suggestions foreign owners may never recover planes worth billions of dollars.

    China’s air regulator asked all foreign carriers last month to update ownership information and other details, RBK said, citing two unidentified sources.  It said Russian airlines that couldn’t provide documents showing their aircraft were “de-registered abroad” were barred from Chinese airspace.

    The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) didn’t immediately respond to a request for confirmation and details of the decision.

    Beijing’s restrictions on Russian airlines foreign owned aircraft came after Chinese president Xi-Jinping’s government said in February that his country’s friendship with Russia has “no limits” however, in the days that followed, when the west jointly took several measures against Russia over the war in Ukraine, China appeared to increase its distance from Moscow.
