Minsk National Airport reopens for passenger flights

02.07.2020

MINSK, 1 July (BelTA) – Minsk National Airport has reopened for passenger traffic, BelTA learned from the press service of the airport.

“A flight of the Lufthansa airline arrived at Minsk National Airport on 1 July, the first one after a long break due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The previous Lufthansa passenger flight to the Belarusian capital took place on 18 March. The Embraer E-190 was greeted with a water salute upon landing, which is a tradition in international aviation,” the press service said.

In July, Lufthansa plans to operate three Frankfurt-Minsk-Frankfurt flights a week (on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays). In August, the number of weekly flights will increase to five. “The German airline launched regular flights to Minsk in 1992 and was one of the first European airlines to enter the Belarusian air transportation market,” the press service added.

The representatives of the airport noted that Turkish Airlines has also resumed flights on the Istanbul-Minsk-Istanbul route. In July, it will operate four flights a week.

BelTA reported earlier that the Belarusian air carrier Belavia has started operating charter flights. The schedule already includes flights to Albania, Turkey, and Egypt. The company also intends to launch charter flights to Tunisia, Montenegro, Greece, and Bulgaria.
