Today, the first tourist charter flight from Moscow landed at Chechnya airport, the federal tourism agency's press service reports.
This year, the geography of the charter program has expanded to the Caucasus, now it includes 12 regions of Russia, while a year earlier there were seven regions. The launch of charter flights will reduce the package tours cost up to one and a half to two times, which will stimulate the development of the tourism industry in the North Caucasus, the Federal Tourism Agency believes, AiF-Stavropolye reports.
Most flights to charter destinations will be operated from Moscow, but some regions can also be reached from St. Petersburg Airport.
Earlier it became known that the FUN&SUN tour operator, which organizes charter flights to Chechnya, decided to replace the planes with more spacious ones due to the increased demand in this direction.
