Read Time:41 Seconds

Jun 16. The U.S. Commerce Department on Thursday broadened export controls on Belarus’s national airline, Belavia, for providing flights on Boeing aircraft in violation of restrictions issued after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Companies around the world are now prohibited from maintaining, repairing and otherwise using U.S. parts or equipment to service Belavia’s fleet, according to a Commerce Department order issued against the airline.

Belavia violated U.S. regulationsby flying Boeing aircraft after April 8 into and out of Belarus to and from Russia, Turkey, Moscow, St. Petersberg, Georgia, the UAE and Egypt, the department said.

On April 8th, Washington restricted flights on Belarusian owned, controlled or operated aircraft manufactured in the United States or made in a foreign country with more than 25% controlled U.S. content from flying into Belarus or Russia.
