Travel news digest for October 14
The news about the resumption of air communication between Russia and new countries is now the most anticipated. Wednesday, October 14, pleased the tourist industry with the addition of the list of permitted destinations for flights. It includes Serbia, Japan and Cuba. Thus, the unofficial information that had appeared earlier from TourDom.ru sources was confirmed.
Cuba is by far the most interesting tourist destination among these countries – especially this winter season. Russian tour operators have already perked up skis, or rather planes. It remains only to wait for clarifications and an official order Federal Air Transport Agency: which airlines will be the first to take tourists to Freedom Island, will charter flights be allowed, with what frequency will the flights be operated?
Another gift – the airlines were allowed to fly more often to the Maldives, the UAE, Switzerland and Belarus. Please comment if you are happy with such news or are you waiting for permission to fly to other countries?
But how to get to Belarus along the land border, said a representative of the Italian host company Melur Destination Management Marina Nikitenko… On October 10, she went by bus from Moscow to Minsk to fly from there to Italy.
However, her experience may no longer be relevant. Yesterday, unconfirmed information appeared about toughening the rules of entry for Russians. Whether it is necessary to present a negative PCR test at the border, they found out directly at the country’s embassy.
While countries are experiencing the consequences of the coronavirus, they are introducing or, on the contrary, canceling restrictions, something grandiose for tourists has again been built in Dubai. In particular, Palm West Beach has opened, and the Palm Fountain presentation is scheduled for October 22. It claims to be the largest in the world.
Despite the good news, flights to most destinations are still out of reach for Russians. And in order to somehow encourage tourists to travel, tour operators offer to buy tours to closed countries, on a symbolic prepayment and with a guarantee of a refund if the state is still closed at the time of the trip.
