The ban on flights of Russian and European aircraft to Egypt could play into the hands of Goa, reports the Internet portal Tourporm. This year, the number of charter flights to this holiday state of India barely exceeded 630 – the lowest figure in the past five years. Today, local host companies are hoping for an additional number of tourists to come from Russia and Europe.
Russia and the United Kingdom are considered the leading sources of customers for Egyptian tourism. They also account for the main volume (60%) of tourist traffic to Goa.
Starting from November 19 until the end of the month, the charter company Royal Airlines will be carrying out additional flights from Moscow to Goa. These will be smoothly continued in December. The question now is to work jointly with Russian tour operators to increase the number of tourists.
Over the past five years, Russia has become the leading generator of domestic tourist traffic in this region of India.
