MOSCOW, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea hopes for tourism boom this summer, First deputy premier of the Republic of Crimea Rustam Temirgaliyev told Rossiya -24 television.
"Crimea accommodates around 5.5 million tourists annually. Most of them used to come from Ukraine, and around 2.5 million came from Russia. Now that Crimea has joined the Russian Federation, we are hoping for a tourism boom," Temirgaliyev said.
"We expect many Russian airline companies to increase the number of flights to Crimea, organizing air service from Simferopol to all the big cities in Russia; we hope that the Crimean health resorts will be 100% full this year thanks to vacationers from Russia," Temirgaliyev said.
