YEKATERINBURG, April 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The development of tourism ties between the Republic of Crime and the Urals will be discussed on Friday by representatives of the sector and officials at the Big Urals forum in Yekaterinburg. The press service of the regional government told ITAR-TASS that Crimean Tourism Minister Yelena Yurchenko would present the tourism potential of the peninsula to businessmen of the Urals Federal District at the forum.
“At a roundtable discussion the officials and sector representatives will focus on prospects for development of tourist destinations between Crimea and Urals,” the press service said.
According to Vice President of the Urals Association of Tourism Sergei Buzko, last year there were many Urals residents who wanted to go to the Crimean Peninsula for holidays.
“Planes to Simferopol were filled to capacity during the season,” Buzko said. “Crimean resorts have always been notable for their inexpensive quality services” for holidaymakers.
The air carriers UTair and Urals Airlines in the short run will begin to service the seasonal routes that will link Russian cities with Crimea.
“From Yekaterinburg to Simferopol two flights per week will be performed by an Airbus,” the Urals Airlines press service told ITAR-TASS". “If the demand for the destination is high, we will make the flights more frequent.”
“Planes to Simferopol will be flying several times per week. We will attentively follow this destination, conduct daily monitoring of the number of sold tickets,” the UTair press service said. “If this destination becomes top rated, it will be serviced by higher-capacity planes.
