The national carrier is counting on a full resumption of flight programs to Egypt in the coming days. This was stated by the CEO of the company Mikhail Poluboyarinov at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
According to him, thanks to this, it will be possible to at least partially replace the Turkish direction, which will remain closed at least until the end of June.
“It is rather difficult to replace the Turkish market, Egypt is expected to open in the coming days, and it may be possible to compensate a little,” said the top manager of the carrier.
He also noted that in the coming year one should not expect a strong change in the cost of air travel up or down, while noted that some fluctuations are inevitable.
Recall earlier Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov confirmed the information about the final check of the airports of the Egyptian resorts by the inspection commissions from Russia. He clarified that the commission’s report will be transferred to the operational headquarters, which will make the final decision on the date of the start of air traffic.
Earlier, Russian tour operators said that the fate of the entire industry at the moment depends on how quickly mass charter destinations, Egypt in the first place, open. This is the only country that can at least partially compensate for the absence of Turkey in the Russian tourist market.
Only important. For the pros only.
