Launching a regular flight linking Minsk and Arkhangelsk is one of the main issues on the agenda of cooperation between Belarus and Arkhangelsk Oblast in the transport sector. The meeting was also attended by representatives of Belavia and Minsk National Airport on behalf of Belarus and representatives of Arkhangelsk Airport and Red Wings air carrier on behalf of Russia.

Aleksei Lyakhnovich pointed out the important conditions that make it possible to actively develop cooperation today: “On 1 January 2025, an intergovernmental agreement will come into force, establishing equal tariff conditions in the provision of airport and air navigation services to air carriers of the two countries.
