The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has confirmed Ukraine’s control reliability of two routes in the western part of the Black Sea near Crimea and allowed European airlines to fly routes, closed in connection with the MH-17 tragedy.

Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Andriy Pyvovarsky said this at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“The agency acknowledged that Ukraine can provide comfort and security for European airlines that are planning to use these two directions, which have been closed because of the MH-17tragedy,” the minister said.

According to Pyvovarsky, this decision was approved yesterday. These routs run along the airspace of Ukraine above the western part of the Black Sea, not far from Crimea.

“Yesterday evening the European Aviation Safety Agency officially allowed European air carriers to use these two routs when planning flights over the western part of the Black Sea, not far from Crimea,” the minister said.

Also, the Infrastructure Ministry in today’s statement specified that the airspace over the Crimean peninsula and its territorial waters remains closed.
