PORT OF CAUCASUS, April 08. /ITAR-TASS/. Passenger traffic through Crimea's Kerch port doubled in March compared with the same month last year, Alexander Annenkov, president of ANRUSSTRAN, operating the Crimea-Kuban shipping line, told ITAR-TASS on Tuesday.
“Our vessels transported 46,000 passengers in March 2013 and more than 100,000 this March,” he said.
The line offers passage on Kerchenski-2 and Yeisk ferryboats, carrying around 964,000 people, 113,000 cars and 12,500 trucks in 2013. The new ferry Nikolay Aksenenko joined the line at the end of 2013, embarking up to 260 passengers and 40 cars.
Kerch offers a good alternative for Russian tourists planning trips from Russia to Crimea this summer and able now to avoid crossing the Russia-Ukraine border.
Tourists can arrive in Russia’s Krasnodar region by train and reach the port of Caucasus by bus to board a ferry to Crimea. This transportation system should be ready for operation by May 1.
“We hope passengers will not have to face all these needless customs procedures soon”, Russia’s minister of transport Maxim Sokolov told reporters.
