In Russia, the demand for travels to annexed Crimea has declined by 25%, reported "Kommersant" citing the data provided by the Russian air carriers.
In addition, according to the travel agencies, Russian tourists prefer the cities with more developed infrastructure, such as Sochi rather than Crimea.
- Russian tourists who earlier opted for Turkey and Egypt now prefer to go to Sochi, Anapa and Gelendzhik where the level of service is higher than in Crimea, said the Svyaznoi- Travel Company.
According to the Company, the number of those wishing to visit Sochi has grown by 40% this year.
In turn, Sergei Romashkin, General Director of Dolphin Tour Operator, said that the decline in demand for tours to Crimea has also been triggered by a flight price increase.
