The Chinese counted up the Russian tourists in Hainan
The tourist flow has increased, but the "burning" threatens to direction since October. During the first seven months of 2016 the Chinese Hainan island was visited by 23% more tourists from Russia than in the same period of the last year. Such statistics was published by TASS September 8 referring to the data from the Xinhua News Agency. At present time the major player in this direction is "Rus-Tur" tour operator. From Moscow to Sanya airport the company implements flights by “UTair” carrier - one flight per week on board of the Boeing 767. Since October 11 the frequency of flights from the the capital will be increased to two weekly flights. In addition, the tour operator has the flight chains from Khabarovsk and Krasnoyarsk to Hainan by Boeing 737 800 of “NordStar” airline company. From September 19 the another departure city will be added - Novosibirsk and since the end of October may be the flights from Irkutsk. The frequency of regional programs is once a week. From October 12 the “ANEX Tour” will compete with "Rus-Tour" in Hainan direction. The “ANEX Tour” is planning to launch two weekly flights from Moscow by “Azur Air” carrier. Meanwhile, the experts believe that even declared “ANEX” transportation from Moscow can create a surplus in this direction, which may leads to "burning" of tours since October.
