As of 9 p.m. Eastern Time Wednesday, Russian aircraft are prohibited from entering U.S. airspace.

President Biden announced he was ordering that in his State of the Union address Tuesday night, joining the European Union and Canada in banning Russian planes, part of a worldwide effort to punish Russia for its invasion of Ukraine.

The Putin regime is expected to reciprocate and prohibit U.S. aircraft from entering Russian airspace. That could mean longer flights as jets are rerouted around closed airspace, but aviation industry experts say Russians will likely feel the greater impact.

According to a statement from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the order prohibits all passenger, cargo and charter flights on “all aircraft owned, certified, operated, registered, chartered, leased, or controlled by, for, or for the benefit of, a person who is a citizen of Russia.”

Any aircraft operators who violate the ban on entering U.S. airspace “may be intercepted, and their pilots and other crewmembers detained and interviewed by law enforcement or security personnel, as appropriate.”

The airline that will see the most immediate impact is Russia’s Aeroflot, which had been flying into Miami, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C, and had been flying over U.S. and Canadian airspace to destinations in the Caribbean. Those flights to and from the U.S. are now banned and Aeroflot will have to reroute flights to get to popular vacation destinations.
