According to Mr. Demura, this year the tour operator plans to increase its volumes by 3.5 times and send at least 200 thousand Russian tourists to Turkey and 150 thousand to other countries.
According to him, before the start of the season TUI sold about 30% of summer tours to Turkey. At the same time, the clients of the tour operator also increased demand for Greece, Cyprus, Montenegro.
In the next year, 2018, TUI Russia, according to the information from the company's CEO, is planning to increase the number of tourists no less than 2 times.
