Belarus seeks to resume flights to Russian regions

15.10.2020

The Belarusian Transport and Communications Ministry seeks to resume flights from Minsk to regions of Russia, BelTA learned from the press service of the ministry.

“The number of flights en route Moscow-Minsk will be increased to three a week on a mutual basis. Flights to other Russian cities are currently off the agenda. However, we expect to reach relevant agreements and resume air travel to Russian regions,” the press service said.

Railway passenger traffic between Belarus and Russia is still suspended. The ministry noted that the countries are in talks over this issue. The transport ministries will make the decision in view of the epidemiological situation and then harmonize the organizational matters.

“As for air travel, at first, we agreed to operate one flight a week, now this number has been increased to three flights a week. We hope that we will make similar progress regarding other means of transport,” the press service added.

BelTA reported earlier that the number of flights between Russia and Belarus en route Moscow-Minsk will be increased to three a week on a mutual basis. The decision was taken by the Russian Emergency Operations Center to stop COVID-19 spread.

Air traffic between Russia and Belarus was resumed on 21 September: one flight a week was authorized on a mutual basis. Since late September, national carriers Belavia and Aeroflot have operated one roundtrip flight a week between the capitals of the two countries.
