Low cost carriers might fly from Belarus

02.10.2013 18:39www.belta.by
Foreign air carriers might start operating low-cost flights from Belarus, Belarus' Transport and Communications Minister Anatoly Sivak said.
"Of course, we can always allow foreign companies to run this business, but we should keep in mind that we have the budget and our companies pay taxes. The goal of our ministry is to reduce the cost of tickets of our air carrier," he said.  

Anatoly Sivak informed that he discussed budget carriers with his Lithuanian counterpart. "He told me that Lithuania has to maintain the necessary infrastructure out of its own funds to enable low-cost carriers to make profit with such a pricing policy. Are we ready for that today?" the minister asked.

Anatoly Sivak noted that Belavia will acquire two new airplanes in H1 2014. In his view, the expansion of Belavia's fleet of aircrafts will ensure the further reduction of the prime cost of its tickets.
