Pegas Touristik expands its flight program to Zanzibar
The first direct flight to Zanzibar (Tanzania) will depart from Moscow on October 25. The flights will be operated by NordWind Airline for Pegas Touristik. The second charter chain starts on October 30. As the tour operator says, the volume of sales is high. Connecting flights are booked more badly, experts say.
“Thus, the number of flights per month has increased to six. Tours are designed for 10, 15, 20, 25 nights. The cost of the tours starts from 1 376 Euros for two persons for ten nights in a 3* hotel on BB base, - said the press service of the tour operator.
The company notes good sales rates. “A little more than a week has passed since the start of sales, and the bookings are already active, the volumes are increasing every day. To date, there are 44 hotels on sale in Tanzania,” the press service of the tour operator reports.
Tourism retail confirms that the demand for tours to Zanzibar on Pegas Touristik charters is high.
“While most winter beach destinations are not available, tourists have turned their attention to Tanzania. This is actually a prospective destination and there is no doubt that it will be in demand. If other destinations continue to be unavailable, more direct flights to Zanzibar will be required,” travel agents say.
Yes, tour operators still hope that India and the countries of Southeast Asia and Caribbean will be opened in winter. But in conditions of uncertainty, it is impossible to predict the dates of the start of flights there. So, it is possible that the number of charter chains to Zanzibar will increase, experts say.
Biblio-Globus company, which arranged flights to the Tanzanian island together with Rossiya airline until March 22, stated that they would make a decision to resume flights to Tanzania after October 1.
“Flight plans depend on other tourist destinations that may be opened for Russians from October 1,” the press service of Biblio Globus said.
Nowadays, the tour operator offers tours to Zanzibar on the basis of connecting flights in Istanbul and Dubai.
