Pobeda, which positions itself as a low-cost air carrier, will make its first flight to Belarus on February 16.

According to the Ministry of Transport and Communications of Belarus, the airline has received accreditation for flights to Gomel from February 16 and Minsk from March 25.

Now the Russian airline must conclude contracts with service organizations, in particular, the airports of Minsk and Gomel.

Pobeda airline was accredited in December 2017. Flights will take place in two directions: St. Petersburg-Minsk and Moscow-Gomel.

As noted in the Belarus Ministry of Transport, when choosing an airline, it is necessary to take into account that the low-cost airline may have restrictions on baggage transportation and choice of seats, as well as a number of non-refundable tariffs.

Earlier, the Russian air carrier Nordavia received permission to fly from St. Petersburg to Minsk. It may start flights to Belarus from March 2018, however the flight schedule is still unknown. 

The airline was also accredited in December 2017.
