TALLINN – The Belarusian air carrier Belavia is to open a new route between Estonian capital Tallinn and Belarusian capital Minsk on May 30, 2019.

Flights will take place four times a week with 76-seater Embraer 175 aircraft, the duration of the flight is one hour and 15 minutes and the prices of return tickets start from 178 euros, the state-owned airport company Tallinn Airport said.

The airport said that a direct connection with Belarus has been in the sphere of interest of the airport for a long time and according to the airport's CCO, the route between Tallinn and Minsk became reality relatively quickly.

"We have met with Belavia on several occasions and we are glad that the new route will be opened namely now. In addition to a direct connection with Minsk, Belavia through this route will also open significant layover possibilities for our passengers namely in the direction of Russia, Ukraine and Kazakhstan, which until now have been less accessible from Tallinn," Eero Pargmae, CCO of Tallinn Airport, said.

Pargmae added that the route will initially start with a frequency that meets the market demand, and as volumes and demand increase, the carrier is also prepared to increase frequencies in order to establish a daily connection.
