EU closes airspace with Belarus. Strike planned by Portuguese immigration officers from 31 May to 28 June
Advice. BELARUS. Following the latest incidents, the Belarusian airline Belavia will not be able to fly to the countries of the European Union and the European Council has called on European lines to stop flying to Minsk or overflying its territory. Most of the European airlines are canceling their flights to Minsk and avoiding crossing its airspace.
For these reasons, it is recommended to avoid non-essential trips to Belarus. Spanish citizens who are in Belarus and wish to return to Spain can for the moment return with a stopover in Turkey. More information here
