Pegas Touristik won’t fly to Israel from Chelyabinsk

UrBC, Moscow, November 11, 2011. The tour operator Pegas Touristik is now offering fewer flights to Israel and the Dominican Republic as well as fewer seats on Kenya-bound flights, TourBusiness reports.

The news of a reduction in the number of winter-time flights to Israel, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, and Thailand was announced by the Association of Russian Tour Operators this week.

‘The number of flights will go down noticeably only when two countries are concerned, that is, Israel and the Dominican Republic. As for Egypt and Thailand, the operator only canceled one flight out of several dozens of flights offered under the company’s current programs,’ Pegas Touristik’s Director-General Anna Podgornaya told TourBusiness.

As a result, the tour operator will be operating flights to Israel only from Yekaterinburg rather than from the initially planned five Russian cities this winter: the flights to Israel from Chelyabinsk, Ufa, Samara, and MinVody were canceled.

As for the Dominican Republic, the number of flights on offer was reduced by one-third. The flights were initially supposed to have been operated from Moscow, Yekaterinburg, and Novosibirsk. Now the dwellers of Novosibirsk will have to travel via Moscow or other cities.
