There has been no need to revise flight routes for planes departing Lithuania to account for the closed air-space in Eastern Ukraine, says acting director of the Lithuanian Civil Aviation Administration Joris Gintilas.

There are no air routes from Lithuania to the part of the Ukrainian air-space closed off from flights after a Malaysia Airlines jetliner was shot down on Thursday.

“There are no flights from Lithuanian airports – operated by Lithuanian companies or otherwise – via that territory,” the head of the Civil Aviation Administration told BNS.

Budget carrier Wizzair has a route from Lithuania to Georgia that flies near the closed air-space, but the carrier has yet to issue a statement on whether it will alter the route.

Ukrainian authorities have declared the country’s Eastern region a no-fly zone following the crash of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jetliner carrying 298 people, the European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation Eurocontrol said. There are unconfirmed reports that separatist rebels shot the plane down.
