MOSCOW, February 10 (Itar-Tass) —— As many as 283 clients of the Russian money-strapped travel company Lanta Tour Voyage are still outside of Russia, ninety-nine of them are returning home on Friday, a spokesman for the Russian Tourism Agency (Rostourism) told Itar-Tass.
The bulk of tourists – 165 – are staying in Thailand, as many as 60 Lanta clients are in India, 26 – in Indonesia, 14 – in the Czech Republic, 10 – in Cuba, six – in Vietnam, and two – in Spain.
“Practically all Lanta tourists are to come back to Russia before February 11, several people will return on February 12 and 13,” Oleg Moiseyev said.
Lanta Tur Voyage, one of Russia's largest travel agencies, unexpectedly suspended its operations on January 27. The company announced bankruptcy as the Master Bank denied it a credit line. As a result, thousands of Lanta Tur clients were unable to fly to their vacation destinations, while tourists staying abroad had problems with payments for hotel accommodations.
On January 31, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin instructed Minister of Sport and Tourism Vitaly Mutko to settle the problem faced by the Russian tourists who were travelling from Lanta Tour Voyage.
On February 1, VTB bank and Lanta Tour Voyage signed a seven-million U.S. dollar credit facility agreement for the term of five years to allow the tour operator to pay its debts.
Lanta Tour has operated for more than 12 years and specialized in organizing trips to Thailand, Vietnam and India.
