    Airlines have rerouted flights around #Belarus after the European Union warned carriers against flying over the country, in the wake of a Ryanair flight being forced to land there on Sunday. Air France and Singapore Airlines both announced they would change flight paths early on Tuesday. Minsk will see some financial consequences from this move, as the country earns fees from planes using its airspace. Also today, we look at the increasing popularity of a rail freight service from China to Western Europe.
