Moscow, April 29 – In the last week of April, the news from the tourism sector is more or less positive: the network of air transport routes abroad is expanding, coronavirus restrictions are being lifted ahead of schedule, and the start dates for the beach season in Russian resorts are already taking place. It is announced. About the hottest hits in the hospitality industry for the week – in a summary by the News Agency.
Let’s start with visa issues. Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Tourism said it plans to offer free entry visas on arrival. This is good news, especially since you can get there from the Russian Federation by direct plane.
The visa center in France has simplified entry for Russian tourists and has begun to fight bots. Now 35.5 euros must be paid before registration to submit documents.
The number of international flights is increasing. Aeroflot has launched regular daily flights between Sochi and Yerevan, and has also started selling tickets for passenger transportation from Volgograd to Antalya.
From mid-May, another carrier – AZUR air – Fly from Moscow to Hurghada and Sharm El-Sheikh.
Kyrgyzstan’s Aero Nomad Airlines will launch flights from the city of Osh to Krasnoyarsk from May 22.
Another important news. Seasonal trains went to Crimea a month earlier – before the May holidays. The number of trains has increased this year.
Tour operators are exploring new directions. Thus, China Travel has resumed selling tours to the Chinese island of Hainan, and Pac Group offers tours to Greece with an excursion through Armenia.
But the Russian Foreign Ministry considers holidays in Albania unsafe. Diplomats are afraid of the expulsion of the Russians, arrest and the initiation of criminal cases under far-fetched pretexts.
Finally, some positive news. Japan will lift COVID-19 restrictions on tourists from April 29 instead of May 8 as previously thought. And in Sochi, they announced that they would open the city’s beaches on June 1.
