Due to the escalation of military conflict, World Wide Customs has suspended all services to and from Ukraine. The Ukrainian airspace is closed to civilian flights. The area is now defined as an Active Conflict Zone and EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) has warned there are additional safety risks.
Moldova, southwest of Ukraine, also closed its airspace, while Belarus to the north said civilian flights could no longer fly over part of its territory. The Port of Odessa was closed by Ukrainian authorities.
