Previously, we performed over a hundred flights to Russian cities just per week. Today this figure is much more modest – about ten times less. However, every month we do everything possible to restore habitual for us and for passengers our flight map. Moreover, in such difficult conditions, Belavia tries to open new directions to simplify for people the way to home, to make business trips more comfortable or organize journey. In May, we are planning to provide new flights to Samara and Ekaterinburg. We hope everything will be brought into action. Each of these cities has its own unique history, atmosphere and opportunities”, - Noted Igor Cherginets, the general director of Belavia Belarusian Airlines.
