The U.S. issued orders suspending Aeroflot PJSC, Russia’s biggest airline, and two others from receiving U.S. parts and services for their planes, a step that officials expect over time will limit their ability to fly.
The airlines “will over time largely be unable to continue flying either internationally or domestically, as they are now cut off from the international support and the U.S. parts and related services they need to maintain and support their fleets,” Matthew Axelrod, assistant secretary for export enforcement at Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security, told reporters on Thursday.
