Last week Peter Szijjarto clarified this issue:
“It was great when Belavia started to fly twice and even three times weekly. Now we are talking about five flights a week to Budapest. Wizz Air is very close to an agreement on two more flights Budapest-Minsk, or Grodno, or Vitebsk. Thus, even seven flights between Belarus and Hungary are planned! We will agree on the launch date very soon.”
Peter Szijjarto and Vladimir Makei, Foreign Minister of Belarus, signed an agreement of cooperation between Hungary and Belarus for 2020.
