“We can say that after a difficult for everyone 2020 year, aviation is slowly coming out of hibernation. Last year, our passengers got the opportunity to fly to Vienna and Tashkent, in February 2021 – to Dubai. We have big plans for the development of a route network for 2021. Samara has become the second route after Ekaterinburg, which we opened this spring. This is the city with a fascinating history, related to aviation: there passenger aircraft TU-154 were manufactured, Belavia operated them for a long time. We expect that the opening of flights to Samara will help to attract transit passengers to Minsk”, commented Igor Cherginets, general director of Belavia Airlines.

”Air communication between Minsk and Samara is extremely important for us taking into account economic and cultural ties both at the federal and on the regional levels. The Samara region is a perfect place for tourism, especially in summer. I am sure that the travelling along the Volga will not leave anyone indifferent even the most experienced travelers and this route in our route network will give an additional impetus for the development of a tourism in Europe”, marked Mihail Berman, executive director of Kurumoch International Airport.

Samara is a picturesque city in the Middle Volga Region of Russia, situated on the famous Volga River. This route will be interesting for everyone who is interested in the history of rocket production, dreams of visiting Grushinskiy festival of songs composed and performed by amateur singer and composer, and who wish to stroll along the city streets, where Maxim Gorky wrote “Song of the Falcon” and “Old woman Izergil”.
