The Russian Association of Tour Operators announced that Russia and Turkey will not resume flight this year. According to the experts, this and the fact that there is low demand for the Turkish resorts due to instability in the country and attempted Putsch, will result in significant decrease in the number of Russian tourists visiting Turkey.
Out of the expected 300,000, possibly there will be 100,000 tourists. In case if this will be the case, then the actual number of tourists will be 35 times less than that of last year.
However, Russia plans to resume the flights to Egypt regardless of the events which took place in October last year..
The Russian Ministry of Transport and Egyptian Civil Aviation Minister have agreed to develop a step-by-step plan of action to resume the flight between the two countries.
