Intourist will fly to Antalya from 10 cities of Russia
In the winter season 2019/20 the number of charters to Turkey will increase significantly: the winter tours to Antalya from 10 cities of Russia have become available in the booking system of Intourist tour operator. Considerable increase of transportation on the destination may reduce the prices of tour packages.
According to the tour operator’s booking system, the charter flights to Antalya in the winter season will be operated from 10 cities of Russia from October 2019 to April 2020. The list of departure points includes Moscow, Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar, Nizhny Novgorod, Ufa, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk, Samara, Voronezh and Kazan.
The Intourist’s flight program will be based on the charter flights of Red Wings and Nord Avia airlines (aircraft types are Airbus 321 and Boeing-737-800). Departures from Moscow and Chelyabinsk will start on October 28 on Red Wings flights. And then, according to the schedule, they will be carried out on a daily basis from other cities. The winter flight program to Antalya will last until April 2020.
Intourist launches several charter chains in the winter season. In the past winter season, the tour operator also proposed package tours to Antalya - but on the basis of blocks of seats on regular S7 flights. According to the company, the last year’s experience was more than successful, especially from regions during high season. So, in the season 2018/19 it was decided to arrange own charter program, quite broad in geography.
Last year, tour operators Coral Travel, Anex Tour, Pegas Touristik and Biblio-Globus had their own charter programs in the winter season to Turkey with flights from the regions. Apparently, these flight programs will be continued and expanded in this winter season.
