A somber looking Danish Foreign Minister announced that Denmark is closing the Danish airspace to Russian flights as quickly as possible nd therefore he urged Danish residents in Russia, who wish to leave, to get on board a plane as quickly as possible.

The window to leave by airtransport towards Denmark (and other EU countries) is closing by the minute.

Any SAS plane originating from Russia will still get landing permission in Copenhagen, but the window is closing  and Russian retaliation may make it difficult for SAS return flights.

On the app flightradar24 it is possible to see the consequence as flights are forced to return to Moscow as the airspace over Finland and other countries closes to them.
