The pictured EW-455PA was delivered on August 13, 2016.
According to Boeing:
“The new livery is the result of a collaborative effort between Belavia, Boeing and the design firm Teague. Before creative concepts were drawn, Boeing’s Airline Partnership Marketing team and Teague provided guidance and training through a series of brand workshops.
The logo was inspired by the cornflower (“Valoshka” in Belarussian), which is a national symbol of Belarus– representing beauty, friendship and prosperity.
The airplane’s interior combines a blend of cornflower blue, light grey and white with the Boeing Sky Interior lighting.”
Belavia Belarusian Airlines (Minsk) and Boeing (Chicago and Seattle) have reached an agreement on an order for three Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes. Valued at $272 million at current list prices, this is the first direct purchase of Boeing airplanes for Belavia.
The new airplanes will be capable of carrying up to 189 passengers in economy class cabin. Belavia said it will use these airplanes on existing charter routes because the economic efficiency of the airplanes will reduce operational costs and the extended range will allow for nonstop flights to farther destinations, including Tenerife, Canary Islands and Dubai.
Belavia serves a network of routes between European cities and the Commonwealth of Independent States, as well as several Middle East destinations. The airline’s Boeing fleet currently consists of six 737-500s and seven 737-300s.

Belavia Belarusian Airlines (Minsk, Belarus) has signed a firm contract for two Embraer ERJ 195s with Embraer Commercial Aviation. The transaction was announced today at a press briefing in Salzburg at the annual general meeting of the European Regions Airline Association. The firm order will be included in Embraer’s 2013 third quarter backlog.
The aircraft will join two Embraer ERJ 175s already operating at the airline. The acquisition is part of the carrier’s fleet renewal initiative to replace older aircraft. The first E195 will be delivered in the first semester of 2014.
Belavia selected the E195 to replace its older narrow-bodied jets. The aircraft are configured with 107 seats in a two-class layout. The E195s will allow the airline to increase frequencies on some routes and to develop its network from its base at Minsk International Airport.
Belavia Belarusian Airlines (Minsk) is planning to start twice-weekly service between its Minsk base and Barcelona, Spain on December 26 per Airline Route. The new route will be flown with Boeing 737-500s.
