SOCHI, March 11 (Itar-Tass) – Sochi’s Mayor Anatoly Pakhomov suggests fixing legally air fares to Sochi and fares for other kinds of transport for the period of the Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2014.
He said a possible rise of fares may affect the number of guests coming to the Games’ capital city.
“We want to apply the legislators to “freeze” the fares so that as many as possible Russians could fly or come to us,” he said. the mayor is sure most guests of the Games would want to return to the city.
The modern ski resorts in Krasnaya Polyana have extended the resort period for three months already. Some sports facilities would become exhibition or trade centres, and the Olympic Park will have a seven-kilometres’ long embankment and hotels by the sea.
The preparations for the Olympic Games have changed and renewed the resort city’s infrastructures, he continued.
“We should separate from the expenses for sports facilities those expenses for improvement of the resort city itself,” he said. “We are preparing preconditions for hosting future sports events, including exhibitions and conferences – after the Games already. All these events will be attracting here tourists – our major investors.”
