Belavia (B2, Minsk National) is looking to add E-Jet E2s and B737 MAX jets as part of its fleet renewal plans. The state-owned carrier currently operates a variety of Boeing, Bombardier, and Embraer jets the oldest of which include eight B737-300s, six B737-500s, one CRJ-100, and three CRJ-200s. It also operates two E175s and two E195s alongside five B737-800s.

According to the BelTa news agency, Belavia Director General, Anatoly Gusarov, told a media gathering last week that management was currently developing a provisional fleet renewal plan for the period 2018-21. The B737 Classics, he said, would be gradually replaced with a combination of Boeing and Embraer jets.

Gusarov said Belavia would accept an unspecified ERJ on April 12 with a further two due in May and June. The carrier also signed a contract with Nordic Aviation Capital late last year for the delivery of five Embraers of which three will deliver in 2019 and two in 2020.

Concerning the Boeings, Gusarov said Belavia's technical department would shortly finalize its selection of a lessor to supply up to five B737 MAX jets in 2019-2020. It will also continue negotiations with Boeing over the purchase of two more jets due in 2021, he added.
