Belavia plans to launch its low-cost routes from regional airports
The state-owned monopoly airline Belavia is considering launching low-cost flights from regional airports, according to tut.by.
— We are considering the organization of Belavia flights using the low-cost business model. We have such aircraft, we have regional airports that are able to provide low tariff rates for servicing these aircraft. We are now working with the geography of flights — where would this passenger be, in what directions he would be interested to fly on the low-cost model, - said Artem Sikorsky, Director of the aviation Department of Minsk transport.
Earlier, the aviation Department signed a memorandum with the Hungarian aviation administration, which allowed Wizz Air to operate flights to both the national airport in Minsk and regional airports. Wizz Air is currently negotiating with the capital's airport on terms of service and proposed tariff rates.
