Executive Director of the Association of Tour Operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze spoke about the decrease in demand in domestic tourism by 30 percent. This information appeared on website organizations.
According to her, the downward trend in demand for vacations in Russia was outlined in the summer. “And yet, such a“ surprise ”as the introduction at the peak of the season of severe restrictions on the most popular inland direction, in the Krasnodar Territory, most“ blurred ”the results of the season. And the expert continues the negative effect in the form of losses in this region in the fall, ”the expert explained.
In addition, the specialist noted that the adoption of new coronavirus measures in more than 30 regions also had a negative impact on the desire of Russians to travel around the country on November holidays.
“In the regions that“ enter QR codes ”there, they stop buying tours, and they are cautious in other internal directions. As a result, compared to the first week of October in the second month, the demand for tours in Russia on average in the market fell by 30 percent, ”Lomidze concluded and added that for the period from 4 to 7 November, the demand in the outbound tourism segment naturally increased.
