Russian airlines and airports will be disconnected from the international .aero domain zone. This decision was made by the Swiss provider of civil aviation services, SITA, which administers the .aero domain zone, Forbes Russia reports, citing sources in the aviation industry.

The decision is a response to sanctions and the war in Ukraine.

There are over 200 websites registered in the .aero domain zone. Approximately 30 Russian airports, including Sheremetyevo, Zhukovsky, Kazan, Krasnoyarsk, and holding companies such as "Airports of Regions" and "Aerodynamics," as well as 15 airlines, including "Pobeda," "Azimuth," "Yamal," "Ikar," and "Alrosa," use this domain.

At least three sources in the aviation industry confirm this information.

Meanwhile, Russia reportedly attempted to address this issue with money, although not for an extended period. According to one source, the registrar Ru-Center, upon receiving a notification from the Swiss side, urgently extended the validity of the domains for all its clients by one year at its own expense to maintain the functionality of the websites.

It is not clear how the emergency renewal of domains can affect the imposition of sanctions, as Russian media outlets do not provide information on this matter.
