From January to November 2015 Minsk National Airport served more than 2.5 million passengers, which is 6.1% more than during the same period in 2014. The increase in passenger traffic is primarily linked to the opening of new flights by the Belarusian airline company. The national airline carrier has intensified flights to Ukrainian destinations, with a regular flight to Kharkov launched recently. Belarus-Ukraine passenger traffic has seen a three-fold increase since 25 October.
