MOSCOW, June 24. /ITAR-TASS/. The airport of Crimea’s Simferopol has been servicing more than 90 daily flights from mid-June, says a report released by the Rosaviatsiya Federal Air Transport Agency on Tuesday upon request by ITAR-TASS.
On June 15, more than 6,300 passengers arrived in Simferopol on 50 flights, and more than 5,400 people left Simferopol (45 flights). On Monday, June 24, the airport serviced more than 11,600 in-and outbound passengers on 86 flights.
