Belarusian airline Belavia opened a new airline to Minsk. Flights will take place four times a week and the flight lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes.
“Belarus is a new destination for us, and we expect great interest in it both from people going on holidays and entrepreneurs. In addition to the direct flights, the airline opens great transit options to Russia, Ukraine and Kasakhstan, which so far have been less available from Tallinn,” said Eero Pärgmäe, commercial director of Tallinn Airport.
Igor Tcherginets, vice president of airline Belavia: “Opening of an Estonian-Belarusian airline is an important milestone for Belavia, the passengers and both countries in a wider meaning. Belarus is also known in Europe as a contributor to the area of IT and technology. Thus, the opening of the new airline will boost the development of both tourism and the economic relationships.”
Vyacheslav Kachanov, ambassador of Belarus in Estonia: “Direct connection between Minsk and Tallinn is a sign of good relationship and interest in cooperation. Creation of a direct connection facilitates the development of diplomatic and economic relationship between Belarus and Estonia and the establishment of contacts in the areas of culture, science, education, sports and tourism.”
It is possible to travel to Minsk for 30 days, visa-free. The price of return flight tickets start from 178 euros.
