Pobeda Airline launches the flights to Turkey from the regions
Pobeda has opened a ticket sale for the new flights to Turkey from cities where charter programs are widely represented. The flights from Perm to Antalya are scheduled twice a week from the end of May; airplanes from Kazan will start flying from June with the same frequency. It is reported by the press service of the carrier on April 11.
According to the carrier, tickets for one person from Kazan to Antalya and back from June 3 to 9 will cost 15 540 Rubles (213 Euros). And the price of ticket from Perm is 17,378 Rubles (239 Euros) from 4 to 11 June.
Pobeda has a lot of competitors in both destinations. So, the Turkish carrier Onur Air, as well as the Russian Royal Flight, Red Wings, Nordwind, Azur Air, IrAero, iFly fly from Kazan. Royal Flight, Nordwind, Red Wings and Azur Air fly from Perm.
According to the founder of the Kazan travel agency "Pyramid-Tour" Aydar Bakirov, there is enough space on the market for everyone, since the capacity of flights from Kazan to Turkey is "mad". However, the low-cost carrier most likely can’t draw customers of tour operators: the regular flights will be in demand, especially among those who own real estate in Antalya. In Perm travel agencies have the same opinion. “Individual tourists may be deterred by restrictions for the baggage volumes, difficulties during check-in. In addition, the price of the tour package will still be 30% lower. I think that it is important for tourists to have insurance, as well as transfer,” says Ekaterina Golovchenko, the director of Planeta Travel Company.
