Turkish Airlines signs Russian tourism agreement
Turkish Airlines will allocate the seats to Turkish tour operators operating in Russia (primarily Anex Tour,
Pegas Touristik, and Coral Travel).
The agreement is part of a larger plan formulated by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the Ministry of Transport
and Infrastructure, and the Ministry of Treasury and Finance to attract Russian tourists to the country.
According to the Turkish media outlet SABAH, Turkish Airlines has been talking with leading tour operators for a while now.
The seat agreement was signed under the coordination of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism and
is already being implemented.
Turkish Airlines is one of a select few foreign airlines still flying to Russia, although it has significantly
reduced its schedule over the last month.
Additionally, the airline has banned Russian citizens from flying on all routes except between Russia and Turkey.
The conflict in Ukraine, which has led to embargoes on Russian-linked companies, has made it
difficult for tour operators in Russia to continue bringing tourists into Turkey..
