SINGAPORE — Singapore Airlines announced on Monday (Feb 28) that it will “temporarily suspend” all return services between Singapore and Moscow until further notice.

In a statement posted on its website, the airline said that there were “operational reasons” for the suspension, which affected flights SQ362 and SQ361.

“SIA apologises to all affected customers for the inconvenience caused."

The airline added that all affected customers will be offered a full refund of the unused portion of their ticket.

Customers who booked directly with SIA may seek a refund through its assistance request form. Those who made bookings through travel agents or partner airlines may contact their travel agent or booking airline for help.

When contacted by CNA, SIA did not respond to a question about the "operational reasons", which have resulted in the suspension of Moscow flights. 

SIA's temporary suspension of return services came as other airlines announced similar measures.

German carrier Lufthansa said last Saturday that it was preparing to shut its airspace to Russian planes in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Air France-KLM has also suspended flights to and from Russia as well as the overflight of Russian aircraft. 

Finnair said that it would cancel flights to China, Japan, Russia and South Korea through March 6 as it avoided Russian airspace. CNA
