The European Union (EU) has imposed a flight ban on Antalya-based airline Southwind, claiming it is linked to Russia.

In the news published on Aerotelegraph.com, it is reported that the investigation carried out by the Finnish aviation authorities concluded that the majority ownership and effective control of the airline is in Russia and that it is connected to Russian financial groups. For this reason, Finland did not allow the company to fly between Antalya and Helsinki.

Immediately following this decision, Brussels on Thursday, March 28, also announced that the company Southwind Airlines, whose official name is Cortex Aviation and Tourism Trade, is prohibited from taking off, flying and landing in the territory of all EU member states, in accordance with Article 3d, Article 31 of Regulation No. 833/2014.

It was noted that the ban in question would be implemented immediately.

The company will also not be able to fly to Zurich, Switzerland, which is not a member of the EU, but all European airspace is closed to Southwind Airlines.

EU sanctions against Russia are extensive and unprecedented. These include targeted restrictive measures, economic sanctions, diplomatic and visa measures.

These measures are part of the EU’s response to Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine and aim to support Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, as well as to hold Russia accountable for its actions.
