Should IL-86 be forbidden to fly to Egypt, prices will soar and number of travelers will drop, claims Inna Averyanova of Inna Tour

‘The Egyptian authorities have been trying to ban the use of IL 86 planes for transferring Russian tourists to Egypt for a few years already, but we are hoping this ban will never be imposed, for it is advantageous for neither them nor us,’ Director of Inna Tour Travel Agency Inna Averyanova said to UrBC.

‘IL 86 is very economical compared to, for instance, TU 154, which is why, should these planes be forbidden to fly to Egypt, prices will soar and the number of travelers will drop. In the meantime, Egypt is a country whose economy largely depends on tourism, and the possible ban would mean the country was going to lose one of its largest market segments, which is bound to tell on the federal budget,’ Ms Averyanova observed.
