NEW DELHI, December 19 (Itar-Tass) ——More than 150 Russian tourists, who could not return home from the resort state of Goa due to Kuban Airlines company’s bankruptcy have been safely sent to Russia, ITAR-TASS was told on Wednesday at the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Mumbai.
“The tourists have been sent home by RusLine air company and by some other avia companies", the Consulate General stated. "Approximately the same number of tourists still wait to be flown back to Russia”. They are to return home as soon as possible.
According to Indian regulations foreign passengers who have arrived by charter flights must use charter flights to go back.
In this connection the Consulate General of the Russian Federation in Mumbai has addressed the civil aviation agencies of India with an appeal to grant a permission to Russian passengers of the bankrupt Kuban Airlines company for taking sheduled flights to Russia by way of exception.
The resorts of the Indian state of Goa are extremely popular with Russian tourists. According to preliminary estimates, some 150,000 tourists will vacate there in the current tourism season, which ends in spring of 2013.
