EASA issues Safety Information Bulletin for the Ukrainian Airspace

The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) published today a Safety Information Bulletin (SIB), taking into consideration the reported loss of flight MH17 in Eastern Ukraine.

Through this SIB, EASA strongly recommends the National Aviation Authorities of the EASA Member States to inform all aircraft operators to give careful attention to Notices to Airmen (NOTAMs) and information addressing airspace and routes modifications concerning this region.

In particular, EASA and EUROCONTROL Network Manager, strongly recommend airspace users to avoid the restricted areas affecting the Simferopol (UKFV) and Dnepropetrovsk (UKDV) FIR and circumnavigate using available alternative routings.
