Around the world, different countries have imposed sanctions on Russia for this invasion. Some of the sanctions include financial, maritime, diplomatic, and aviation restrictions. Similar to other countries, Aruba is considering possible sanctions per our laws. These are based on the sanctions that the EU has imposed.
The imposed sanction is the closure of the Aruba airspace for Russian-owned or managed aircraft.
In addition, to the closing of the airspace, Aruba has also initiated sanctions on Russian-owned aircraft registered in Aruba. So far, seven aircraft are being unregistered or grounded.
Together with the Department of Civil Aviation, the Minister will monitor these sanctions closely. These sanctions are adopted regularly and will be enforced accordingly in Aruba.
