Sales of tours abroad have been stopped in most mass destinations. Moreover, they will not be restored until the situation with flights is more or less resolved. At the moment, tour operators are only launching “export” flights, and more than 90% of tourists have already been taken to their homeland. This information was announced in an interview with RIA Novosti by the head of Rostourism, Zarina Doguzova.
“As for trips abroad, today all tour operators have temporarily suspended the sale of tours to most mass destinations until the situation with flights normalizes,” she said. At the same time, according to her, the “restart” of flight programs and, in general, all decisions on this matter “will be made after we return all our tourists home.” Ms. Doguzova urged tourists to “take a responsible approach to planning trips abroad” and take into account “constantly changing circumstances and all possible difficulties.”
The ministry also reported that air carriers and tour operators have already returned home more than 90% of organized tourists, or about 85 thousand people. It remains to take out about 5 thousand tourists. At the same time, the bulk of them – or about 4 thousand people – got stuck in Egypt. According to the information of the department, these are mainly tourists who rested “through the line of three large tour operators.” “The return process has become more complicated and takes longer than the tour operators expected, due to new Western sanctions on aircraft that were planned to carry out export flights,” the Federal Tourism Agency said.
