Pegas Touristik will carry tourists to Egypt via Turkey
The tour operator Pegas Touristik changes flight plans for Egypt. As it was changed the airline, the adjustments have occurred in the flight programs. Flights to Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada will be operated by a Turkish carrier instead of Nordwind airline. On the way there will be a stop in Antalya.
Anna Podgornaya, General Director of Pegas Touristik, announced changes regarding transportation in the tour operator's Egyptian tours. “Instead of Nordwind, Southwind Airlines will transport our tourists to Egypt. Since it is a Turkish carrier, flights to Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada will be operated with a stopover in Antalya. Tourists will not have to leave the plane. The changes took place due to the Jordan’s ban for Nordwind aircraft to fly over their country,” said Anna Podgornaya.
Pegas Touristik flight program to Egypt in the winter season includes 12 departure cities: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Perm, Orenburg, Ufa, Nizhny Novgorod, Volgograd, Samara and Sochi.
Nowadays, Southwind airline flies to Turkey from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, Perm, Kazan and Chelyabinsk. Tourists from cities where Southwind does not operate flights will travel to Moscow on Nordwind flights, and from there, with a connection, they will fly on Southwind airplanes to the resorts of Egypt via Antalya.
