According to the vice President of the Russian Union of Tourist Industry, the Russian tourists who cannot travel to Egypt, could chose Greece and Cyprus, instead. He also added that because of the riots in Egypt the prices of touristic packages to more “quiet” destinations have increased 10-15 % in the Russian market.
“Russian tourists should adjust their choices and chose different destinations. If someone books a package to Greece early enough, may have a 35% reduction, for the summer period”, said the president of the Russian Union of Tourist Industry. Egypt used to absorb more than 2 million tourists from Russia annually. From now on, the Russian tourist market destinations and prices will change.
