From September 21, all restrictions imposed by Russia on flights to Belarus will be removed. On September 9, the presidents of the two countries agreed on this at a face-to-face meeting.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, planes operated about 200 flights a week between countries. Due to the threat of the spread of coronavirus infection, air traffic had to be limited. Starting in September 2020, Russia and Belarus have gradually restored communications. Trains and planes flew more often.
For example, in June there were only 10 regular flights a week from Russia to Minsk. This number doubled in August. The number of flights from Krasnodar and Sochi was also increased. In September, there are 36 flights a week between the countries.
