Tour operators extend charter programs to Sri Lanka for the summer
Russian tourists in the summer season will be able to continue flying to Sri Lanka on charter flights. Tour operators have decided to extend part of the winter flight programs to the island. This means that the cost of tours will remain at an acceptable level. In summer, tourists will be offered the east region of Sri Lanka, where the high season is at this time.
Sri Lanka in the winter season was in the TOP-3 most popular holiday destinations among Russians. Positive dynamics continues in the spring season.
Forecasts of tour operators for the summer season are also optimistic. A number of tour operators decided to extend the charter programs for the summer and autumn seasons. Tourists will be offered to make holidays in the east of the island.
On April 05, the launch of charter flights to Sri Lanka for the summer season was announced by the tour operator Fun&Sun. It is already known that two more tour operators will join him on the same flights, but the companies will announce their plans a little later.
The new Fun&Sun charter program is planned on Red Wings flights on the Moscow-Hambantota (Mattala airport) - Moscow route. Flights will be operated twice a week (Thursday and Sunday) starting April 30. The program will end on October 31.
As part of the new charter program, Fun&Sun tourists will have access to tours lasting 11 and 12 nights. They will spend them at the resorts located in the east of the island. These are the resorts of Trincomalee and Passikuda.
