Over 60,000 Russian tourists will have an opportunity to spend vacations in Turkey in September, Dmitry Gorin, the Vice-President of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) told Rossiay 24 channel on Sept. 1.
"We also know that Russian and foreign airlines have filed requests for 63 flights a week between Turkish (and Russian) cities and if all these plans materialize, a minimum of 60,000 people will be able to travel to Turkey at very competitive prices in September," Gorin said.
He also indicated that one could speak about a considerable reduction of prices for tours to Turkey already now.
"Early analysis shows the prices have fallen already and an economy tour for two per eight nights costs 32,000 rubles ($ 484) now," Gorin said.
Chartered flights between Russia and Turkey resume on Sept. 2 after an almost year-long break.
