“We expect this route to become popular with business representatives, – noted Igor Cherginets, General Director of Belavia Airlines – Murmansk is known as a large industrial center, it has well-developed fish processing, metalworking as well as other industries. Murmansk has great logistical potential as it is a major port city. The new route is oriented both for passengers traveling in transit through Minsk and for tourists who prefer non-trivial routes. Here you can enjoy the Northern Lights, visit ski slopes, picturesque hills and a real nuclear-powered icebreaker, go on a boat trip and watch whales. We also be glad if with the opening of the route the guests from the Polar region will visit Belarus more often and will appreciate its tourist attractiveness”.
