Belarusian national carrier Belavia Airlines has launched services from Dubai to Minsk, boosting international connectivity at Dubai International airport (DXB).

The airline’s inaugural flight from the Belarusian capital arrived at DXB’s Terminal 3 on Friday night (February 19). T

The airline will operate two flights a week between the two destinations on an Embraer 195-E2 aircraft with a capacity for 125 passengers.

The first flight was, however, operated on a 189-seater Boeing 737-800 aircraft due to heavy demand.
