MINSK, 19 September (BelTA) – Belarusian Voyage trains are to become regular, head of Belarusian Railways Vladimir Morozov said on the air of the STV TV channel, BelTA informs.
“In the 2022-2023 season, we are considering launching more trains to Anapa and Adler, as well as Murmansk. In addition, it is planned to launch direct trains to Pskov,” Vladimir Morozov said.
According to the head of Belarusian Railways, there plans to operate the Belarusian Voyage trains on a permanent basis: “There will be three trips before New Year, and more trips during New Year holidays.”
The upgrade of the rolling stock used for domestic services is also under discussion. “This is not an easy task. Now there are not many manufacturers who can offer rolling stock specifically for short-distance economy class services. Yet, we need to find an alternative, because trains are getting worn out, and they will need to be replaced in the near future,” Vladimir Morozov added.
