Russians stuck at New York airport were able to fly home, but not all
Part of the Russians stuck at the airport were taken from New York. People could not fly away for several days due to the fact that Russia suspended flights with all countries and canceled flights. This publication reports Air force.
Not everyone was lucky
Aeroflot flight with the Russians flew to the forest from New York Kennedy Airport on Wednesday morning, April 8th. It is reported that only a part of the people were taken from the airport.
Recall that people could not return to their homeland, because Russia suspended air traffic with all countries and canceled export flights.
According to the rule “one country of departure - one Russian region” introduced by the Russian authorities, only residents of Moscow and the Moscow region could return from America.
Moreover, only those who filled out the application on the federal government services portal were able to get on board.
What was earlier
Recall that last week several flights were supposed to fly to Moscow from New York, but all of them were canceled.
As of Saturday, April 4, more than two thousand Russians in the United States declared their desire to return to their homeland. This was reported by Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov. But already on the night of Tuesday, April 7, he unexpectedly announced that there weren’t enough people wishing to fly to fill even one plane.
On the night of April 8, several dozen Russians gathered at Kennedy Airport who were not on the list of departing for Moscow. All because they are not registered in Moscow or the Moscow region. Some of them agreed to host compatriots living in New York.
It is also noted that earlier the Boeing 777 aircraft delivered to New York the Americans who remained in Russia. The flight from Moscow, according to a source, was filled to capacity.
What do eyewitnesses say
As reported in Facebook one of the eyewitnesses of what is happening at the airport, in an actually empty airport, people gathered only at the Aeroflot departure terminal. They tried to find out which of them will be able to fly out and which will not.
“Quite a lot of people will never be able to fly out today, this is due to the fact that the quarantine boxes in Moscow are crowded,” the author of the video explained.
