Transport and Communications Minister Alexei Avramenko confirmed the arrival of the Hungarian low-cost air carrier Wizz Air to Belarus.
Regular Budapest-Minsk flights are expected to be carried out seven days a week starting next spring. The routes to regional cities or other capitals of the EU have not yet been discussed.
“Our goal is the development of regional airports, and we are simultaneously working with low-cost companies to fly to regional airports. Everything will depend on how their economy develops. They decide on the opening of a route.”
Alexei Avramenko also noted that Belarus is conducting negotiations “with different low-cost airlines”.
Wizz Air is a Hungarian low-cost airline with its head office in Budapest. The airline serves many cities across Europe, as well as some destinations in North Africa and the Middle East.
However, not everyone is pleased with Wizz Air coming to Belarus. Some experts believe that although it is presented as a victory, it is might be a failure and have pretty strong arguments about it.
