Turkey does not see and does not expect any problems with either charter or regular flights from Russia to the resorts of the country. Moreover, Russia and Turkey are now negotiating on expansion of the geography of air transportation to Turkey from Russian regions. The number of flights will also increase.

According to Ahmet Arslan the Minister of Transport and Communications of Turkey, currently Turkey is connected with 18 cities of the Russian Federation by regular flights. He said, that “we have an agreement to increase this number to 26 Russian cities”.

According to the Minister, by the end of June only Turkish carriers will perform up to 470 flights a week (last year - 102 flights a week) from Russian cities to Turkey airports.

Currently, four Turkish airline companies fly to Russian cities: Turkish Airlines, Onur Air, Pegasus Airlines and Atlas Global, which now carry out 365 flights a week from Russia.

Recall, that the Russian tour operators now are actively building their flight programs to Turkey, which are based not only on charter flights, but on regular flights too.
