“The low-cost airline Pobeda (part of the Aeroflot group) has received admission of Rosaviatsia to perform regular flights to Belarus”, - informs the press service of the company.
The carrier was allowed to fly on the routes St. Petersburg-Minsk and Moscow-Gomel, in both cases up to 7 times a week.
Pobeda airline wanted to open flights to Belarus in 2015. It was planned that Minsk will be its first international direction. The carrier repeatedly applied for admission, but each time received a refusal. The experts connect this fact with the condition of coordination of Pobeda tariffs with Belarus national carrier Belavia, which feared competition on the routs. At that time the minimum tariff for Pobeda was 999 Rubles ($ 17), now - 499 Rubles ($ 8,5).
