Airlines and destinations
Gomel airport was a hub of Gomelavia airline, which ceased operations on 22 February 2011 due to bankruptcy. Gomelavia had been serving flights to Minsk, Moscow, Grodno and Kaliningrad. From 25 July 2011 Belarusian flag carrier, Belavia, started serving flights from Gomel to Kaliningrad during summer seasons once again.
Gomel airport is now mainly used for charter flights to Italy, Belgium, Spain and some other Western European countries, those flights are organised by Western European organisations that take children from Gomel to Western Europe to host families for recreation purposes.
In summer 2014, because of local population's awareness about instability and ongoing war in Ukraine, Belavia started to carry out new charter flights from Gomel to Thessaloniki and Burgas. Flights to Kaliningrad since summer 2014 have a stopover at Minsk National Airport.
|Belavia||Seasonal: Kaliningrad Minsk-National
