“Independent Russian tourists are most often interested in air tickets to Paris and Sochi for the upcoming May holidays”, - said the PR-director of Aviasales on line flights search service Janis Dzenis.
"Paris is the leader among foreign destinations. The number of early bookings this year increased by 64%, while the average check fell by 20% - up to 29.6 thousand Rubles (417 Euro)", - he added.
Among abroad destinations, the TOP 5 also included Tbilisi, Istanbul, Prague and Yerevan. "We expect that closer to the dates of departure Chisinau will come in the leaders’ list, which is steadily popular at any time of the year", - underlined J. Dzenis.
He also noted that the average check for domestic and international airlines for the first quarter of 2018 in comparison with the same period of the last year has increased, but insignificantly.
