MOSCOW, November 21. /TASS/. The Far Eastern regions have huge potential for developing package tours, head of the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rostourism) Oleg Safonov told TASS.
“This year we offer package tours to Moscow, St. Petersburg, package tours to other regions have been developed including big cities of the Central and Northwestern Federal Districts, in particular. We believe that the Far Eastern regions, namely Yakutia, Kamchatka and others, have huge potential as far as package tours are concerned,” he said.
According to Safonov, Russian regions’ package tours that include plane ticket, transfer, accommodation and meals are a new product for Russia’s tourism market. “There were very few such tours before 2015. However, Russian tourists are very well acquainted with package tours, they know all the pros and contras of such tours and often prefer package tours when they travel abroad,” the Rostourism head noted.
“Nevertheless, package tours very much depend on the regional infrastructure. In order to offer package tours, a region should have high level hotels and health resorts,” Safonov elaborated.
