Russian Tour Operators Association: Egypt flights to enjoy great demand

6 April 2011 (09:22)

The demand for trips to Egypt has exceeded the tour operators’ boldest hopes. According to the Russian Tour Operators Association, the first chartered flights from Moscow left the capital nearly fully loaded.

‘The demand for flights within the Russian regions where the flights will be resumed after April 10, 2011, is also expected to be quite high,’ the association reports.

‘We expect to start operating flights to Egypt from the Russian regions starting April 10, 2011,’ website ATOP quotes the General Director of Pegas Touristic Anna Podgornaya as saying.

Ms Podgornaya explains the regions will resume their flights later than the Russian capital because of some technical problems: while this destination was unavailable, the airplanes were transferred to other directions, so the airlines now have to make rearrangements quickly.
