The head of the Ural Tourism Association Mikhail Maltsev called Bulgaria an adequate substitute for Turkey for Russians in terms of recreation.
Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Tatyana Golikova said that the headquarters had made a decision to restrict air traffic with Turkey from April 15 to June 1. Maltsev believes that the climatic conditions in Bulgaria are “normal”. In his opinion, African states cannot be fully an alternative – neither Tunisia nor Morocco.
“Opening the Egyptian direction may be a solution. But we have been talking about this since 2014. But I am in favor of the Bulgarian direction. Although Egypt is a year-round destination, it is hot in summer, ”the head of the association said.
As the advantages of Bulgaria, he named the mildness of the climate, the presence of a large number of rooms. RIA Novosti Maltsev said that it is necessary to intensify the negotiation process with Sofia.
