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.

Belavia orders three Boeing 737-800s to upgrade the fleet

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.
