In anticipation of the winter season, tour operators are actively developing plans for the delivery of tourists to Egypt under the conditions of air sanctions. According to ATOR experts, the Anex Tour tour operator offered tourists a choice of three options. They will include both flights to the resorts of Egypt by direct flights of AZUR air from Moscow and the regions, as well as the delivery of tourists on EgyptAir flights through Cairo and Turkish Airlines through a transfer in Istanbul. The reason for this diversity is the high demand for the Egyptian direction and limited traffic volumes.
As explained in Anex, the planned number of direct routes is limited to 8 frequencies per week from three cities (Moscow, St. Petersburg and Yekaterinburg), which is clearly not enough. “Transfer” options will increase the possibility of transporting tourists.
Prices, according to ATOR, are “acceptable”. The details are as follows:
- Prices for tours to Egypt with a direct flight from Moscow from Anex start from 185 thousand rubles for 11 nights in 4 *, in 5 * the price starts from 188 thousand rubles. for two.
- A tour to Egypt with an Egyptair flight with a connection in Cairo costs from 141 thousand rubles. for two in a 4 * hotel and from 136 thousand rubles. to a 5* hotel. Duration of rest – 11 nights.
