Tracker shows flights avoiding Belarus airspace

Flightradar animation shows Hungarian-based carrier WizzAir rerouting a flight from Kyiv to Tallinn to avoid Belarusian airspace on Monday (May 24).

Latvian airline airBaltic flights BT410 from Riga to Odessa and BT724 from Riga to Tbilisi both diverted from their usual path and travelling around Belarus on Sunday.

AirBaltic said on Monday it will no longer use Belarus airspace for its flights.

Belarus scrambled a fighter jet and flagged what turned out to be a false bomb alert to force the Ryanair plane bound for Vilnius, Lithuania, to land in Minsk. It detained an opposition-minded journalist who was on board, drawing condemnation from Europe and the United States.
