Russian carriers are expected to hastily apply for an extension, until the end of the year, for exemption from the EU’s ACC3 security rules. The new requirements begin next week, but due to political concerns, the EU is said to be stalling over giving Russia ‘green light’ status, which exempts its carriers from the rules. It was agreed in April that carriers which, through no fault of their own, have been unable to comply will receive an extension.  But if the EU fails to grant Russia, which has high security requirements anyway, ‘green’ status, there may be tit-for-tat requirements for EU airlines in Russia.
