Air Moldova airline will not resume flights to Moscow, following a decision made by the Civil Aviation Authority of Moldova on Sept. 10 banning the airline, and other national carriers, from flying to Russia.

Air Moldova had initially announced the opening of flights to Moscow starting Oct. 1 on Sept. 9. According to the carrier, this decision was motivated by numerous appeals from Moldovan citizens who are in Russia and want to return home using the tickets purchased before the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
