Problems with GPS navigation in Europe have been reported since the start of Russia’s all-out invasion of Ukraine, particularly around the Kaliningrad region, a Russian enclave overlooking the Baltic Sea.

Two planes of the Finnish national air carrier Finnair, flying from Helsinki to the Estonian city of Tartu, were forced to turn back due to GPS signal interference, Finnish broadcaster Yle wrote.

Finnair’s communications director Päivit Tallqvist said that flights that took off on Thursday and Friday evening returned to Helsinki-Vantaa Airport.

According to the schedule, 00.40 they should land in Tartu.

GPS interference itself is common and does not cause these situations, Tallquist said. Often airports have multiple proximity systems and do not necessarily require a GPS signal.

“Tartu Airport is one of the few airports where there are no other approach methods,” commented Tallqvist.

Daytime flights on Friday continued as usual. Finnair only started operating flights to Tartu at the end of March.

Since 2022, GPS signal interference has also increased during flights in Finland.

Let’s recall that problems with GPS navigation in Europe have been reported since the beginning of Russia’s massive invasion of Ukraine, in particular around the Kaliningrad region, a Russian enclave overlooking the Baltic Sea. European states believe these are deliberate actions by Moscow.
