Belarus flag-carrier Belavia Airlines announced an order for three Next-Generation 737-800 airplanes on June 26, 2014. This agreement represents the first direct purchase of Boeing airplanes for Belavia.
The new airplanes will be capable of carrying up to 189 passengers in economy class cabin. Belavia said it will use these airplanes on existing charter routes because the economic efficiency of the airplanes will reduce operational costs and the extended range will allow for non-stop flights to farther destinations, including Tenerife, Canary Islands, and Dubai.
