Ambassadors from the European Union on Friday approved an order to ban airlines from Belarus from flying over EU territory or landing in EU airports.
This will affect Belavia the most.
European Union airlines will be prohibited from flying to or over Belarus, according to Reuters.
Meanwhile Belavia is increasing the number of flights to non-EU destinations, especially to its friendly destination, Russia.
The airline issued this statement:
Belavia has received permission to fly to Moscow to Sheremetyevo International Airport. From June 10 the airline will fly to Sheremetyevo five times a week – on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Belavia also increases the number of flights on three other routes.
From June 12, the airline will fly to Istanbul 14 times a week instead of 10. Flights are scheduled daily twice a day.
Starting from June 15 the number of flights to Batumi will be doubled – from 7 to 14 a week. Belavia will fly to the main sea city of Georgia twice a day.
Also, from June 15, it is planned to increase the frequencies to the capital of Georgia – Tbilisi. Instead of 7 times a week – 11 times a week. Four frequencies will be added: Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.
