Gomel and Moscow will be connected by the direct flight of Belavia

On October 29, Belavia Airlines launches regular flights to Vnukovo International Airport from Gomel. Minsk – Moscow (Vnukovo) – Gomel - Moscow (Vnukovo) – Minsk flights will be operated three times a week: on Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
Departure from Gomel is scheduled at 20.00, arrival at Moscow airport is at 21.25. Departure from Moscow is scheduled at 17.40, arrival in Gomel is at 19.05.
The flights will be operated on Embraer-175 aircraft with a comfortable economy and business class cabin.
Passengers of the first flights will be able to purchase tickets at the Promo fare: the price of the ticket from Gomel to Vnukovo starts from 25 euro, round-trip ticket is from 61 euro. The conditions of flights at Promo fare are as follows:

  • Tickets can be purchased only on the website (Promo fare and a discount of promotional codes are not summarized);
  • Period of flights at a promotional fare is until December 20, 2023 inclusive;
  • Number of seats is limited.
  • The cost of a one-way ticket using the LIGHT fare is from 44 euro and the cost of a round-trip ticket is from 81 euro.

“We expect that Gomel-Moscow route will be in demand both by passengers traveling on their personal matters and by representatives of the business community, - said Igor Tcherginets, general director of Belavia. – Gomel is the second largest city in Belarus with the developed infrastructure and great export potential. Over the past year, according to official data, more than 52% of exports were made to the Russian Federation. The figure shows the strong business contacts between Gomel and Russian regions. We hope that the opening of the route will contribute to their further development”.

Igor Tcherginets also reminded the traditional advantages of flights - temporal:
“Despite the apparent proximity of Gomel and Moscow, the two cities are separated by a smart distance, which can be covered “by land” in 7-8 hours. The flight from Gomel to Moscow will take less than an hour and a half, and our passengers will be able to use their valuable resource – time – for rest, business meetings or communication with loved ones”.

The new flight is also attractive due to its convenient logistics. Vnukovo is just 19 km from Moscow, and there is an Aeroexpress between the metropolis and the airport. And recently, the metro has also been running: it takes only 40 minutes to get from point A to point B.
