An original measure to save the tourist season from Russia was announced by Turkey – in the country, at the level of high departments, a plan is being discussed to create a special airline, the sole purpose of which will be to deliver tourists from Russia to Turkey. According to Turkish media, departments such as the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure and the Ministry of Treasury and Finance have begun work on this plan.
It is reported that a new carrier is planned to be created in Antalya. “Necessary credit support” will be provided for its creation. The goal of the new carrier is exclusively to deliver Russian tourists.
At the same time, they will create a new carrier, apparently, promptly – in order to be in time for the season. At least, it has already been announced that work on the creation of the airline has “started”. There are also suggestions that if a carrier is created, it will be able to deliver 1 million tourists to Antalya.
As a result, at least 3 million Russian tourists are expected in Turkey. The new carrier will add its 1 million to those tourists who will arrive on the allocated blocks of seats on Turkish Airlines – they are expected to be about 1.5 million, as well as with Pegasus Airlines and Russian carriers with Russian-made aircraft – this is another 500 thousand tourists.
Recall that the creation of a new airline is included in the roadmap to attract Russian tourists and rescue Turkish tour operators, which was presented by the Turkish Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure and the Ministry of Treasury and Finance.
