Minsk Tashkent Flight of December 21
On December 21, 2021 on a Belavia flight from Minsk to Tashkent, at the stage of the initial climb the crew discovered that the pressurization system of the aircraft was working improperly. In order to check the operation of the system to ensure flight safety the crew decided to stop climbing and to return to the base airport of Minsk.
After fuel depletion to ensure maximum landing weight the aircraft landed safely in Minsk at 11.30 pm, where there the aircraft was changed. During the flight the passengers received meals. The reserved aircraft flew to the capital of Uzbekistan at 1.20 am, the flight was normal.
We do apologize to our passengers for the flight delay.
