According to Japanese media reports, at present, a large number of flights between Japan and Europe have been cancelled or bypassed Russian airspace, resulting in delays in air transportation between Japan and Europe and a sharp rise in freight charges.

Japan Europe flights were cancelled or diverted due to the situation in Russia and Ukraine.

Reporters in Tokyo Haneda airport, Japan's international terminal on the roof of the outlook platform, you can see that many planes that should have been on duty to fly international flights are now parked on the far apron.

Flights between Japan and Europe usually fly over Russian airspace, but affected by the situation in Russia and Ukraine, Russia and the European Union have closed their airspace to each other, and Japanese airlines have also decided to bypass the airspace over Russia. It is reported that about 300 sorties between Japan and Europe, including cargo aircraft, cancel or fly around other routes every week.

At present, the two major Japanese airlines have two bypass routes, one through Central Asia and the other through North America. Since they avoid the shortest route through Russia, the flight time of these two bypass modes has increased by 20-30%.

Flying around time increases, freight prices of Japan Europe routes rise sharply.

The change of flight route also increases the cost of fuel and labor, resulting in a sharp rise in freight. According to Japanese media reports, the air transportation price between Japan and Europe has reached about twice that before the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.

Delay in air transportation and shortage of Atlantic salmon in Japanese sushi restaurant.

The delay of air transportation has a significant impact on the lives of Japanese people. Atlantic salmon is a common ingredient in Japanese sushi, 90% of which is imported from Norway. In the past, it was transported to Japan by air over Russia, which could be served to consumers' tables in 36 hours at the fastest.

However, since it is impossible to confirm whether other routes around the flight can ensure the freshness of salmon, there is a shortage of Atlantic salmon in supermarkets and sushi restaurants in Japan.

Logistics delay or affect Japan's import of neocoronavirus vaccine from Europe.

Air transportation is an important way of trade and transportation between Japan and Europe, accounting for about 30% of the total trade between Japan and Europe. In addition to precision instruments, pharmaceuticals are also important materials for air transportation between Japan and Europe, including the new coronavirus vaccine imported by Japan from Europe. The delay of air transportation between Japan and Europe is likely to have an impact on Japan's epidemic prevention work.
