Since February 14, a temporary ban for airlines on charter flights to China began to operate in Russia. Only Aeroflot operates scheduled flights from Sheremetyevo Airport to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and vice versa.

For Chinese airlines, a ban on charter flights was not introduced. Flights to Moscow continue to be operated by China Eastern Airlines and Air China.

According to the Federal Air Transport Agency, from February 1 to 13, Russian airlines completed 30 charter and 75 scheduled flights from China to Russia. At the same time, Russian citizens are in China who bought tickets for flights from February 13 to 29. Of these, 1 reissued tickets to alternative destinations, either to Aeroflot regular flights, or returned tickets. Another 404 passengers of Siberia Airlines and 162 passengers of Ural Airlines are expecting a transfer to alternative flights or a refund.
