In ANEX Tour company, which acts as the main customer of Azur Air flights, confirmed that the carrier received a letter from Rosaviatsiya demanding to terminate of selling air tickets with a flight after March 19. It happened last week and since that time the tour operator is negotiating with other airlines.
"That is why we stated that we begin to look for alternative carriers. We found partners who will be able to provide transportation for all our tourists starting from March 20. But the work on contracts is undergone. This is a long process. Having our volume of transportation, we cannot conclude contracts with all partners in one day", - said the Deputy Director General of ANEX Tour Yana Muromova. She explained that at the moment Azur Air is indicated in many directions in the online booking system, but the flights of this airline are being replaced systematically. And in the case of a negative decision of the regulator, the process will be continued promptly.
According to her, all paid tours with transportation after March 19 will be selled. There may be slight shifts in time, but the date of departure and the cost will remain the same. As for Azur Air, the official commentary was promised to be provided in the nearest time.
