Tour operators offered their list of countries to resume flights

Tour operators offered their list of countries to resume flights

Tour operators offer to supplement the list of countries with which it is proposed to restore air service in the near future. Earlier, proposals on opening borders were drawn up by Rospotrebnadzor.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", the opening of borders will be possible only with countries with a favorable epidemiological situation. Among them are several countries in Europe, Mongolia, China and Vietnam. According to Taras Demur, Director General of TUI Russia, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Spain and other countries can be added to the list.

Anna Podgornaya, CEO of PEGAS Touristik, believes that this list of countries is at least strange, since none of the proposed countries has yet opened its borders to receive Russian citizens. Therefore, in her opinion, it would be much more efficient to start opening borders with countries that are ready to receive Russian tourists: Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey and some others.

According to the vice-president of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia Dmitry Gorin, the restoration of air traffic will begin only after analyzing the epidemiological situation and the mutual readiness of countries to accept tourists.

Now the letter with the recommendations of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare on the opening of air links with Europe is under consideration by the Federal Air Transport Agency and the Ministry of Transport.
