Finnair has unveiled plans to launch a direct,
year-round route between Helsinki and Minsk on 9 June 2018.
Flights between Helsinki and Minsk will be operated two times per
week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, with Embraer 190 aircraft.
Currently, Finnair co-operates with
Belavia on the Helsinki-Minsk route and Finnair’s own flights will
bring the total amount of weekly flights up to five.
“A direct route to Minsk compliments well our
network and will serve especially well customers traveling between
Belarus and North America,” said Juha Järvinen, Chief Commercial
Officer for Finnair. “Additionally, our new Minsk flights will
connect well to Finnair’s Asian and European network.”
Minsk is well known for its history,
architecture and cultural arts scene. The city’s many museums and
historical sites also offer interesting activities for travelers
interested in history and culture.
