Airlineroute.net international aviation news portal has announced the launch of the Beijing-Minsk-Budapest-Beijing route, by Air China — one of the biggest Chinese air carriers. The Aviation Department of the Ministry of Transport and Communications confirms the news, telling us that the route will operate four times a week. It will be the longest duration flight into Minsk (without stopping). Commencing on May 1st, the flight will depart Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, using the Beijing Airbus-330.
