Coral Travel notes an increase of tour sales in Asia
As Erjument Yunalan, the commercial director of the tour operator Coral Travel, said, the leading winter destinations show a significant increase in sales on the stage of early booking,
According to the data provided by Coral Travel, as of the end of October, tourists bought 26% more winter tours to Thailand than a year earlier. Sales volumes of tours to the UAE have increased by 66% in annual terms, by 48% - to Vietnam, by 165% - to India.
For the period of ten years, the tour operator launched the programs in Antalya in the winter season. Mr. Yunalan noted that every year the early booking of Turkey starts earlier and tourists also start buying summer tours in advance.
As in previous years, this winter season Coral Travel will continue skiing programs for the Turkish resorts of Palandoken (Erzrum) and Erciyes (Kayseri), as well as for Andorra, Austria, Italy, Bulgaria and Krasnaya Polyana (Russia). Ski programs will continue until the end of February.
At the same time, Mr. Yunalan noted that the company did not notice a significant increase in demand for ski and combined programs. However, Krasnaya Polyana is growing in popularity among ski tourists.
This winter Coral Travel tourists will be able to go to Thailand, Vietnam, the UAE, Turkey and India not only from Moscow, but also from the regions. In other destinations, the flights will be operated only from Moscow.
