Demand for the Emirates in the spring is growing, tour operators are also expanding the range of tours. Russian Express reported that it had taken a large block of seats on Wizz Air flights to Abu Dhabi from Moscow and Krasnodar. Thanks to the special conditions for tour operators, tour packages in the UAE have become cheaper – when leaving for 30-50 thousand rubles. for a family.
The number of applications for spring tours in the UAE from tour operators is growing every day. Now the leaders in sales are tours for the end of February, as well as the holidays in March and school holidays. They are in demand already last year – the depth of sales is quite good for a pandemic time, they talk about the markets.
The high demand for the Emirates leads to the fact that more and more players in the market are looking for an opportunity to reduce the cost of tour packages through new options for block transportation on regular flights (recall that charters in the UAE are not allowed yet).
WIZZ AIR’S NEW BLOCK TRANSPORTATION TO COST TOURS
So, on Friday, February 11, the Russian Express tour operator announced that it had contracted a block of seats for its tourists on Wizz Air low-cost flights to Abu Dhabi from Moscow and Krasnodar. As the company explained, at present Russian Express is the only tour operator that has such blocks on flights.
“The new flight program on Wizz Air flights makes it possible to make travel to any emirate of the UAE this spring, including May, more affordable and affordable. If we talk about family vacations, then the difference that is found on the supply market, according to known estimates, is 30-50 thousand rubles per family. For many, this is a significant savings. These, of course, are not exactly the prices of Egypt, but it’s already close,” Anna Filatovskaya, director of the advertising and public relations department of Russian Express, told Vestnik ATOR.
