The “Civil Aviation Agency” (CAA) has authorized the introduction of extensive restrictions on the use of airspace near the Latvian-Belarusian border from next week, CAA representatives informed.

Restrictions on the use of airspace come into force at midnight on October 16 and will be valid until December 31.

At the same time, the CAA emphasizes that airspace use restrictions are set from Lauderi in the Russian border zone to Medumi in the Lithuanian border zone, including such settlements as Dagda, Krāslava and part of Daugavpils.

The limits are set from the ground up to a height of 2,895 meters.

The CAA explains that the restrictions are necessary in order to successfully ensure the unhindered fulfillment of tasks of the Latvian National Armed Forces (NBS) related to the use of manned aviation and unmanned aircraft on the Latvian-Belarusian border.

At the same time, the CAA reminds that unmanned aerial vehicles or drones not related to the NBS are prohibited from using the airspace if they have not received approval for the flight. Flights can be arranged at least one working day in advance with NBS Apvieto headquarters.
