North Caucasus is planning to launch air traffic to China in 2018
“Two regular flights is planned to be launched from Dagestan and the Stavropol region to China”, - said reporters the adviser of the head of Minister of Caucasus of the Russian Federation Stanislav Aristov on Tuesday.
"Probably it will be the route Makhachkala - Guangzhou and Mineralnye Vody - Urumqi. I hope that after all the approvals and preparation of route traffic, these plans will be implemented before the end of the next year", - said S.Aristov.
He explained that the air communication with China is necessary within the framework of the Great Silk Road. In particular, a tour along the route of the Silk Road in the North Caucasus was finished recently.
"After the tour, we got good reviews on each republic of North Caucasus. Chinese are concerned with the Caucasus, so it is important to develop air communication", - added S.Aristov.
