MOSCOW, December 21 (Itar-Tass) — The flow of Russian tourists to Egypt has declined by 40 percent this year as compared with the previous year, the head of the analytical service at the Association of Russian Tour Operators, Gennady Borovikov, said on Wednesday.
“The main reason behind this decline in the Egyptian direction was a three-month pause in the transportation of tourists to that country,” he stressed. “During the period of instability in the country of pyramids, tourists opted for holidays in Thailand as an alternative,” Borovikov added.
Although “devastating floods in the country somewhat reduced the flow of tourists to the Kingdom, on the whole the growth in tours to Thailand in the first nine months of this year was 50 percent,” he said.
According to the Rosstat Federal State Statistics Service, this growth was 95 percent in nine months, he stressed.
