Belavia: what you need to know about the Belarusian airline
Minsk Airport mainly provides scheduled and charter international flights to Belavia Airlines - one of the most popular airlines in Belarus. How can we book or buy a ticket? What are the airline's flight directions? We will tell all this in the article.
The history of the creation of Belavia
The holiday of the Belavia airline is traditionally celebrated on March 5 (since 1996), but since it was formed on the basis of the Belarusian Civil Aviation Association, it can be considered since 1993.
Expansion of the geography of flights begins in 1998. At this time, a new route Minsk-2 - Prague - Minsk-2 appears.
Already on May 18, 2001, a transport connection appeared between Minsk and Paris.
For the coming year (2002), the first code-sharing agreement was signed with Austrian Airlines, which marked the beginning of functional cooperation with foreign partners.
2003 was a successful year for the company. At this stage, Belavia begins to operate regular flights to Kaliningrad, in October of this year, the first Western-made Boeing 737-500 airplane arrived at the Minsk State Airport, which was leased by the airline. And the signed agreement between Belavia and Air Baltic on the provision of space blocks on the Minsk-Riga-Minsk flights allowed arranging the first steps in the joint work of 2 airlines.
From February 11, 2008 Belavia opens the opportunity to purchase tickets online for passengers on the Moscow-Minsk flight. It openly demonstrates its advantages over the printed one, especially since the bulk of passengers on the Moscow-Minsk route are business people who value their time. With the introduction of the online air ticket technology, passengers forgot about the ticket office, as they no longer needed to go there and waste their time in queues. Also, now there was no need to arrive at the airport in advance in order to issue a ticket before departure.
Direct communication between Minsk and Milan, established in June 2008, is another step in expanding the route network, and the invention of a personal office by the consulate is a step in satisfying the increased interest and demand for air travel between Belarus and Italy.
On May 17, 2010 Belavia and the main French air carrier Air France introduced an electronic interline agreement, on the basis of which both sides had the possibility to issue electronic transportation papers for their flights.
Joining the European Association of Regional Airlines (ERAA) in July became a necessary and pleasant event for the State Airline Belavia.
The following years opened new regular routes for Belavia all over the world.
And since August 1, 2020, Belavia has changed the circumstances of purchasing auxiliary baggage on the airline's regular flights. From this stage, the price is formed depending on the time and method of purchasing the ticket.
