Following the talks between Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko in Moscow on March 27, as well as the meeting of the Council of Ministers of the Union State, the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation have found a solution to the issue of tariffs for air navigation services. This is reported by BELTA.

According to Roman Golovchenko, the parties have been able to find common ground on the issue of tariffs for air navigation services and now there is a discussion of the entry into force of the decision.

“We will have to converge to a single tariff for the Russian airline and the national airline Belavia. Decisions in principle have been reached; we are now discussing the terms of entry into force of this decision. This will reduce the cost and fares for Belavia, so there will be more opportunities for flights in the regions of Russia,” said the Prime Minister of Belarus.

Earlier in March, Minister of Transport and Communications of Belarus Alexei Avramenko said that Minsk and Moscow could sign an agreement on a phased transition to permit-free road transport and the alignment of airfares in the first half of 2023. He stressed that these are the two issues in the transport sphere concerning the conditions of work of aviation and road carriers, which Minsk and Moscow should solve in 2023 within the framework of the Union integration programs.
