Transaero is selling tickets to Egypt to individual tourists
On March 14, 2015, Transaero air company gave detailed comment to TourDom concerning the situation on Egyptian destination. Last time travel agents noted that some of their clients started going to Egypt on their own by buying flight tickets from Transaero, which was never noted before.
The air company stated that because of decrease of seats booked by tour operators, it had to increase the number of tickets sold through its own sales points.
Recently, we have 92 per cent of tickets sold by tour operators within their packages against 8% of tickets sold by us to individuals, - Transaero says.
Transaero also underlines that demand for Egypt is growing. As an example, Biblio Globus has 10% increase of sales to Egypt in comparison to previous year. We see that real situation existing on several mass-tourism destinations gives us the reasons for optimistic forecast for coming summer season, - Transaero says in their news release.
