Tour operators join forces to load charters to Jordan
The package tours for holidays in Jordan have appeared in the booking systems of tour operators Tui Russia and Anex Tour. The program begin in late October and end in early May. As Tatyana Korshunova, the Tui Russia’s public relations manager, explained, this season in the first month of the flight program there will be three flights instead of two weekly departures.
Anex Tour for the first time took a block of charter seats in Jordan. The tour operator explained this decision by a noticeable interest in the destination among Russian tourists. “First of all, they are attracted to the Red Sea. Here you can also visit the coast of two seas (Red and Dead). The climate in the country is mild, the sun shines almost all year round, allowing the waters to warm up to a comfortable temperature for a safe beach holiday with children,” says Irina Chernyavskaya, the head of Jordan's department of Anex Tour.
We may add: by the order of tour operator Pegas Touristik, from November three more flights a week will be operated by Nordwind Airline. Prices for a weekly trip in tour operator systems with departure in autumn start from 58 thousand Rubles (799 Euros) for two persons in a 3* hotel.
According to observers, Jordan is a really interesting destination for tourists thanks also to an extensive excursion program. Among the disadvantages is the limited hotel base. In Aqaba, during the New Year holidays, the average air temperature is only +17 ºС.
