Advice from EUROCONTROL Network Manager

Further to the ICAO State letter [EUR/NAT 14-0243.TEC (FOL/CUP) issued on 02 April 2014], raising safety concerns in Simferopol FIR 'due to the unsafe situation where more than one ATS provider may be controlling flights within the same airspace from 3 April 2014, 0600 UTC onwards,' the Network Manager strongly advises airspace users to avoid the airspace.

However, NM has no legal authority to reject flight plans unless the ATS routes are formally closed by NOTAMs from the competent authority.

Based on the NOTAM A1392/14 published by the Ukrainian authorities, the routes depicted in the attached map are not available for flight planning.

The EASA Safety Information Bulletin (SIB) is available at the following link.
