The Ministry of Transport and the Civil Aviation Agency (CAA) monitor the situation and developments closely, including the actions of other European countries, while in constant contact with Latvian carriers, other state institutions, and international organisations. It also coordinates the actions with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The CAA obtains the necessary information and consults with national and international partners to assess the circumstances of the incident. While analysing the situation, Latvian carriers have not used Belarusian airspace since yesterday.
The Ministry of Transport is drafting a government decision on further action currently. “This is a serious security situation, whose solution requires a joint decision of the entire government,” indicated Minister of Transport Tālis Linkaits.
