AZUR air will fly to Turkey from 39 Russian cities
As part of the spring-summer navigation, AZUR air is expanding its flight program to Turkey. It has departures from Moscow, St. Petersburg and another 37 Russian cities along four routs – to Antalya, Alanya (Gazipasa), Dalaman and Bodrum.
“On this destination we are the largest charter carrier. The Russians visit Turkish resorts regularly, every year hundreds of thousands of tourists fly to rest on the wings of AZUR air to the shores of the Mediterranean, Black and Aegean seas. This season, we expect to increase passenger traffic on this destination by 30%. We offer a wide range of routs that will help Russian tourists quickly and without changes to get to beach resorts and also to see hundreds of unique monuments, museums, and many places of culture and human history,” says the airline CEO Stogny Yuri.
Taken into account that today the opening of the Cross Year of Culture and Tourism of Russia and Turkey is to take place officially, AZUR air hopes that the expected growth in passenger traffic in this area will contribute to a wide tourist exchange and acquaintance of a large number of Russian tourists with the cultural values of the Turkish Republic.
Recall that the flights to Turkey with departures from Makhachkala, Magnitogorsk and Orsk will begin from the end of April this year. This season, the number of flights on the Turkish destination will increase not only to Antalya, but also to the coast of the Aegean Sea. From a number of Russian regions, more airplanes will fly to Antalya, which are designed to carry 336 passengers in the economy class. On the route Moscow-Bodrum it is planned to use the flagship of the airline, the Boeing 777-300ER, designed to carry 428 passengers with economy and business-class.
In addition, AZUR air opens several new programs. In particular, the airline begins flights to Dalaman (Turkey) from Kaliningrad and Belgorod. Also the flights to Antalya for residents of Tyumen, Surgut and Chelyabinsk will return.
