The tour operator decided not to stop selling tours to Egypt
In Pegas Touristik’s online booking system the package tours to Egypt with a flight to Uvda are available until the end of April, 2019. Initially the program was designed only for the New Year period.
“We continue, as the hotels have offered good prices. I cannot say that it is very low, but very attractive. The direction is in demand and it is quite stable. In January - March, it is still cold on the main beach destinations - Turkey, Spain, Greece and Italy - so Egypt is actual. There are not so many resorts, where there is sea and sun at quite attractive prices”, the Director General of Pegasus, Anna Podgornaya commented.
We should note that now the minimum cost of a weekly tour from January 15 to January 22 on BB was just over 44 thousand Rubles (584 Euros) for two persons. While last year in November, at the start of the program, a similar trip cost 75 thousand Rubles (995 Euros).
On the tour operator's website tours to Egypt are available from eight more cities of Russia. At the same time, travel agents from the south of Russia informed us about the mailing from Pegas Touristik - it was reported that from January 21, tourists from Krasnodar would be transported to Uvda with a transfer in Mineralnye Vody. “The return flight will be carried out in the same way: Uvda airport - the airport of Mineralny Vody”, the letter said. The reasons for this decision the tour operator company did not comment.
Observers doubt that such a complex and long flight will be in demand, taken into account that previously the demand for the program to Egypt in the south of Russia was not very high.
