Russia open borders
The European Union closed the entire airspace of its 27 countries to Russian aircraft on Sunday, following a steady stream of airspace closure announcements by member countries over the weekend.
The zone was expanded from 100 to 200 nautical miles from the Ukrainian border with Russia. EASA argues that the expanded zone now considers the “risk posed by the threat of missile launches to and from Ukraine.”
Gwen Kozlowski, a Florida-based travel consultant, Central European travel specialist and president of Exeter International travel agency, told CNN Travel on Feb. 24 that her agency has received inquiries from travelers with upcoming trips to Poland.
“We have guests traveling in late March and early April to Poland, but that’s more than a month away. It’s impossible to say now how it will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said by email.
Tourists with short-term plans to visit Poland are advised to book accommodation in advance, “as some of the hotel infrastructure may be earmarked for those in need.”
