This review is not so much about the flight but about the economy class check in procedure in Amsterdam. Since recently only passengers are allowed at the baggage drop - not very nice when you check in elderly people who do not speak Dutch or English. The automatic baggage drop off is not for those who just use a computer...

Even though their planes are not new, we still found our experience very positive! The stuff is super friendly & helpful, all the flights were in time without any delays, there is enough space between seats & also, it was really warm in the plane. Belavia also offers free tea/coffee/ water & some sandwiches. We really enjoyed flying with this...

I flew to Minsk with Belavia, and was very impressed. Boarding at Gatwick was speedy and doors closed, and we were airborne in no time at all. Flight was comfortable, and food was served - without charging any money. The food was a decent meal - yes, it was an airline meal, so not gourmet, but pleasant, filling and edible....

Flew this airline with what I guess was a code share for Turkish Air from Minsk to Istanbul with a connection there to NYC. The seats were standard size but by keeping the middle seat open in business class you did get a bit more room to spread out on the two hour flight. The flight attendants were nice and...

You can nowadays visit Belarus without a Visa if you fly to Minsk, so we did. I booked cheap Belavia tickets without knowing that exactly the same flight has codesharing with Finnair, who sell the same flight for considerably more. Everything was good on board, we even got a complimentary snack. But the plane was a small Jet Plane, which...

Service is pretty good, food became much better if compare with previous years. Now a passenger will receive either substantial breakfast or lunch box depending on time of the flight. I'd like to notice that the crew is very attentive to passengerы with children, that is a big plus for me. Flights are not cheap, but very often that's worth...
