The sea crossing route between the Krasnodar Territory and neighboring Crimea is very popular among transport companies, he notes. The ferry service is also used to deliver humanitarian cargoes, coming from all over Russia, to Crimea.
The service became more frequent also after the customs were closed when Crimea joined Russia. The fare remains the same 162 roubles ($4.6) for an adult passenger ticket and 81 roubles ($2.3) for a child. It costs 1,190-1,688 ($34-48) to take a car, from 2,632 ($75) for a bus and from 2,401 ($68) for a truck.
Kerchensky-2 (built in 1978), Eysk (1988) and Nikolai Aksyonenko (2013) ferries are working on the line.
