“We should consider opening up Russian airspace,” Walsh said.
According to Walsh, Beijing, which has recently restricted flights due to anti-coronavirus restrictions, may ease restrictions in 2023.

The head of IATA added that a large number of planes began to accumulate in Europe due to the flight ban over Russia and Ukraine.
