MOSCOW, June 10. /TASS/. Crimea’s resort infrastructure is about 100% ready for the high season, unlike the general infrastructure in the peninsula, Crimea’s Head Sergei Aksyonov said on Friday.
"The resort infrastructure is about 100% ready from the point of view of preparedness of accommodation facilities," he said in an interview with the Rossiya-24 television channel. However, in his words, Crimea in general is not 100% ready as "its infrastructure that had been demolished for 20 year cannot be mended in a span of two years."
Speaking about Crimea’s accessibility for tourists, Aksyonov noted that the Crimean authorities pin great hopes on stable operation of the Kerch ferry. This year, maximum waiting time in the high season is expected to be within three hours, he said, adding that it is planned to operate 12 ferries, including freight ones.
According to Russia’s Federal Tourism Agency (Rostourism), about 616,800 people have visited Crimea since the beginning of the year, which is by 22.6% more as compared with the same period last year. The tourist flow growth during the May holidays was 23.3% on May 2015. According to Crimea’s ministry of resorts and tourism, Crimea welcomed 161,600 vacationers during the May holidays.
According to Russia’s ministry of transport, passenger traffic to Crimea has increased by 30% in January-May.
