Belarussian state-owned carrier Gomelavia has ceased all operations indefinitely.

On its website, the carrier says it terminated all services on 22 February. It does not give any further details.

A source in the carrier's accounts department says that Gomelavia has chosen to save resources following low cabin loads and rising costs during the winter season.

"We will refund for the unused tickets in full," he adds.

Alongside charter flights, the Gomel-based airline provided scheduled services to Minsk, Kaliningrad and Moscow using three Antonov An-24 turboprops.
