Flight: Belavia B2 891
From: Minsk (MSQ) To: Berlin (SXF)
I flew with Belavia from Minsk to Berlin. To qualify for the 5-day free visa in Belarus you must fly in and out of Minsk airport. I arrived with Belavia from Vilnius. For my exit flight I just looked at what European flights were close by, and Warsaw and Berlin were the best options for me.
I also booked on Vayama as their booking process is much simpler.
The flight departs at 12:10 and arrives in Berlin at 13:05 (one hour behind), with a scheduled flight time of 1H, 55M.
Like my flight from Vilnius, the flight to Berlin is in a Canadair (Bombardier) Regional Jet 200.
This aircraft was still sporting the old livery, which is being phased out with a new logo.
The Bombardier Regional Jet has a small cabin with 4 seats across.

Always look at the route map for future inspiration. Hmm, maybe I’ll go to Kharkiv next time.
On this flight a pre-packaged lunch box is served.
Lunch consisted of a bread roll with some kind of sausage, a tomato, and two types of cheese.
We arrived at a rainy Berlin Schoenefeld airport. Here you can see the new airport under construction, which has been famously delayed for years.
Overall this was a good flight to depart from Minsk.
