The Finnish airline Finnair announced millions in losses due to the imposed sanctions against the Russian Federation.


Russia’s retaliatory decision to close the airspace for unfriendly countries turned out to be serious losses for Finland.


According to the head of the air traffic control service of the Finnish airline Finnair, every month they lose about 1.5 million euros, which could earn on air navigation fees. After all, most of the flights from Amsterdam and Copenhagen to Asian countries passed through the airspace of Finland, which received significant income from air navigation fees.
