OPERATOR GUIDANCE DURING FIFA WORLD CUP 2018
J- 48 before Russian World Cup.
Did you prepare everything before landing on Russian territory?
Glance at Christine Vamvakas tips for flying to Russia this Summer :
- Call G-OPS
We will be able to give relevant advice about schedules and any concerns you may have.
- Avoid changes to schedules especially when it comes to airport slots.
The more changes you have, the fewer options are available.
- Be aware of cabotage.
Apply for exceptions well in advance, although these are not guaranteed to be approved
- Always check the NOTAMs.
It is imperative to read these closely as they have specific clauses for GA operators and may change at a moment’s notice.
- Be prepared for delays
Heavy traffic will be operating, so there are likely to be many delays for operators.
- Expect higher prices
- Organize ground transportation in advance and be aware of limitations
- Request inflight catering in advance
In certain locations, there is a 48-72-hour minimum lead time to get these requests.
- Firm up Schedules now
Submit requests for permits, airport slots, parking and hotels well in advance because some smaller locations have limited availability.
- Get your visas in advance
There are a lot of people applying for these, so the process may be slowed down just because of the number of requests being made.
