U.S. extends export restrictions for two Russian airlines


The U.S. Commerce Department on Thursday said it was extending by another six months a denial of export privileges for two Russian airlines that continued to fly Boeing 737 airplanes after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The export denial extensions are for Pobeda Airlines and S7 Airlines, which is also known as Siberian Airlines. The department previously added airplanes the two airlines operate to a list of aircraft believed to violate U.S. export controls as part of the Biden administration’s sanctions over the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Aeroflot is Pobeda’s majority shareholder.

The department has imposed severe restrictions on Russian airlines, warning companies around the world that any refueling, maintenance, repair, or spare parts or services violate U.S. export controls and subject companies to severe U.S. enforcement actions.
