Russian air carriers started selling tickets for the nonexistent flights to France, Rostourism reports. The agency warns the Russian tour operators against cooperating with such airlines that don’t actually have any permission to operate international chartered flights.

According to Kommersant, the airlines in question are Orenburg Airlines and Moscovia that are allegedly acting on behalf of a tour operator Spectrum.

Earlier on, Rostourism refused to allow Orenburg Airlines, Moscovia, Vladivostok Avia, Kavmidvodyavia, and Sky Express operate chartered flights to Grenoble and Chambery.

The agency says doing business with such airlines will only mean that Russian travelers will be unable to fly to the two cities located in the French Alps.

Now among the companies that were actually allowed to operate such flights to the French ski resorts are Yamal. Rossiya, Moskva (formerly known as Atlant Soyuz), Vim Avia, Aeroflot, Ural Airlines, and Globus (part of S7 Group).
