Hi,

Belavia operates out of two airports in Minsk: MSQ and MHP
MSQ is the rather international one, MHP is more for domestic services (though there are some international flights like STO for example).

Can anyone advise some info/hints about Transiting blearus, i.e arriving at one airport and departuring from the other in less than 24 hours. Is there a bus or other shuttle service? The embassy here in German couldn't really help in that matter....

Thks and Best regards
Amir

Hi, I only have some info on MSQ:

Bus 112 connects the airport with the city centre (43 km to its West) every hour. Travel time is 60 minutes, fare is 1 USD.

Hope this helps,

you got it Daniel! well iam trying to find a routing to fly their YAK-40. The headache is they fly SXF-MHP and most of the other interesting routings out there are from MSQ. Unless i fly to MHP and continue next day to Riga from the same airport ( i won't do it without a transit visa of'course)

Minsk-LED is on AN24!!! however i would need a russian visa in order to be granted transit in Minsk and this would be to expensive.

Ah, I see. I´m just getting my dose of Russian visa bureaucracy, and that´s just for a package tour which is one tenth as adventurous as yours.

BTW, have you ever flown a Mi 8? If not, I´m sure you´re aware of the Malta-Gozo service. I did that, I can only recommend it.

Make sure you have a transit visa before attempting your adventure. The authorities in Belarus are notorious for pulling foreign travelers off the Warsaw-Vilnius trains that run via Grodno in Belarus. Many of the unlucky travelers simply don't realize that the train transits through Belarus when they buy their tickets. The Belaurussians usually send them back on the next train to the country of origin, after giving the confused travelers a good scare.
