Belavia Airlines was delightful in every way. This was a very short flight, but the seats were comfortable and the flight attendants served food and refreshments to all passengers.

I recently flew fro Minsk to Warsaw and yes it was probably the best flight I took at the time (I had 5 flights in 4 days) but the airline was outdated. Nothing wrong with that but I just thought it needed sprucing up a little. Nothing wrong with that as the usual flight amenities were available. Usual legroom. I...

Other than the absence of any in flight entertainment, Belavia Airlines surprised to the upside. Punctual departure and arrival, spotlessly clean aircraft, pleasant crew, generous food and otherwise an entirety pleasant 3.5 hour short haul flight.

The plane on the way back only had 52 seats and seemed older. The flight time was 25 minutes and free drinks were served (water...

This airline has old aircraft, service is not great but it has very good prices and it seems to be quite efficient. Good for short distances

Flight out was fine. Newer plane and friendly staff. Plenty of legroom. However coming home was a nightmare. Zero leg room. Miserable cabin crew. Delayed flight. Old plane. Way too hot. It's put me off flying with them again to be honest.

Reasonably cheap for the distance. The plane was clean and the seats comfortable. Nothing to write home about really but pretty good value for money and reasonable flight attendants.

They don't let me board my flight because they consider it an "Internal flight" between Russia and Belarus. Thus, the automatic visa was not aplicable. They were wrong because my native country and Belarus does have a special deal for visas.
