“The opening of air links between the capitals of Belarus and the Black Earth Region for the Voronezh International Airport is a significant event. We consider Belavia flights not just as the beginning of cooperation with the new airline company. Partnership with the Belarusian airline is real prospects in the development of the air harbor and the economy of the region as a whole. Two states, whose fraternal ties were broken, will always find something to be useful to each other. We are talking about the renewal of not only passenger air travel, which will certainly affect communications, but also cargo turnover, the exchange of experience, technology, and the strengthening scientific and cultural ties. So we will meet the crew and passengers of the first flight solemnly, with the words: “Welcome to the Black Earth Region!”, commented Alexander Belevich, head of the Voronezh International Airport.
