Castling in the announced flight program of Turkish Airlines from Russian cities seriously alarmed travel agents and tourists. According to Turizmdatabank, the Turkish national carrier canceled flights from Ufa and Yekaterinburg to Antalya. At the same time, flights have been canceled for the entire summer season, from April 29 to October 31.
The changes were announced on April 15th. Travel agencies are invited to transfer already sold tours departing from Yekaterinburg to flights from Chelyabinsk, Perm, Tyumen. According to the new plan, Turkish Airlines flights are also expected from new cities – Omsk, Perm, Surgut, Chelyabinsk and even Kaliningrad.
Travel agents are extremely outraged and alarmed by these circumstances. “Just last night, I wrote a post that Turkish Airlines flights to Istanbul were canceled from Yekaterinburg. And then more about how I accidentally saw in the evening that Pegasus had lost tours to Dalaman and Bodrum from Yekaterinburg. Today I was waiting for letters with cancellations from the Dalaman tour operator, but surprisingly, letters about the cancellation of applications to Antalya for Turkish Airlines came. We didn’t expect such a setup at all,” one of them said in her channel in Yandex.Zen.
At the same time, the Ural travel agent stressed that the tour operators “hurried to urgently make a decision on a transplant with additional payments of 300 euros per person just before April 15.” “And now all flights to Antalya from Yekaterinburg have been cancelled! Do you think this was done on purpose in order to once again raise money for non-existent tours? ”, The travel agent literally stated. She noted that “new flight programs from Perm, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk and Surgut are appearing” – and tourists and travel agents are again required to “immediately make a decision.”
“They say that the cancellation of flights is associated with sanctions against owner of Koltsovo airport. I can’t even imagine what to say to tourists and in general how to work further. There was hope at least for Turkey,” the travel agent added.
