Transcript of Conversation Between ATC and Ryanair Flight Diverted to Minsk

The Belorussian authorities have published the transcript of the conversation between ATC and the Ryanair flight that was forced to divert to Minsk last Sunday. Ryanair flight FR4978 (Callsign RYR1TZ) from Athens to Vilnius in Lithuania was transitting through Belarus airspace when the following conversation took place. A Belarus national who is a wanted man in his home country was arrested upon landing and Ryanair have called the incident a case of “State-Sponsored Hi-Jacking”. Sanctions have now been put in place on Belarus aircraft entering EU airspace and numerous airlines have cancelled all services to the country.
