MOSCOW, January 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia’s major aviation carrier Aeroflot Russian Airlines takes on board passengers with tickets for flights from Innsbruck, Salzburg and Munich, who failed to fly to Moscow from January 8 through to January 10.
The company will offer to them its flights from Munich during January 10-12, no fines will be applicable.
The aviation carrier reports that Aeroflot continues to follow up the situation, cooperates with the meteorology service and with Aeroflot’s representative offices in Russia and abroad. The company is informing its passengers on the status of flights and changes of routes.
Russia’s several hundred tourists remain at Austria’s ski resorts, as a show fall cuts them from the outer world, Russia’s Tourism Operators Association /ATOR/ said on Tuesday.
According to ATOR, the weather conditions have affected mostly the resorts, which are popular with Russian tourists – Ischgl and Soelden.
The association said that “because of problems with the ground transport, tourists may be late for airports for their return flights.”
The resorts which remain for several days cut off from the outer world are Lech-Zurs, Klosterle, Stubai and Langenlois, and winter resorts Gargellen, St. Gallenkirch, Gaschurn-Partenen, and Montafon. The roads leading to the resorts are stuck with snow and cannot be cleared for the threat of avalanches.
A similar situation is at Gargellen. The only road leading to that city crosses the Montafon mountain ridge, where the threat of avalanches is very high. The unfavorable weather conditions stopped ski lifts and tourists have to while away the time in hotels.
Besides, the approaching warm front may bring new precipitation, thus the mountain road remains blocked and people cannot break out from the “snow siege.” Experts say the situation may become clearer on Tuesday at the earliest.
