— «The change in the tourist market has enabled the airline to develop domestic destinations that have been underestimated so far. Thanks to these changes, Vladivostok residents have the opportunity to spend their holidays on the Black sea for the first time. In the summer season of 2020, we plan to carry about 25000 passengers and perform more than 45 flights», – notedSergey Alexandrovsky, CEO of Rossiya Airlines JSC.
Rossiya together with Biblio Globus offers passengers a comprehensive tourist product. It includes air transportation, transfer, hotel accommodation, and, if desired, all-inclusive meals and tour services.
— «The start of the new tourist season for Sochi Airport was unique. After a long decrease for three months, we have experienced an explosive growth in demand for traditional destinations and expect it to be high in new destinations. The new Far Eastern programme of our partners will allow residents of Primorye to visit resorts of the Krasnodar Krai and during the period of flight restrictions on international destinations to make a choice in favour of Russian resorts», – said Alexey Starostin, CEO of Basel Aero.
