Nordwind Airlines will transport more than 12 thousand Russian tourists to the Thai airport of Surat Thani province, from which it will be possible to reach the hotels of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao. The charter flight program will last from December 27 to April 22 and is designed for 32 flights of Boeing 777-200ER aircraft. This was reported on November 13 by the local news agency Khaosodenglish with reference to the words of the governor of the province.
The information was confirmed by the tour operator Pegas Touristik, which acts as the main customer of the flights.
