After the introduction of a temporary ban on passenger flights from Russia to Georgia by the decree signed by Vladimir Putin after the scandal with the Russian delegation in Tbilisi and subsequent protests, all Russian airlines should cancel flights, and tour operators and travel agents should stop selling tours to Georgia and, instead, offer an alternative direction, writes RUSARMINFO.

As an alternative to Georgia, Russian tourists are now choosing Armenia, the press secretary of the Russian Union of Travel Industry Irina Tyurina notes.

“People go to Georgia for the atmosphere, delicious food and wine. Armenia has it all. So, many, due to the temporary ban, changed the Georgian tour to the Armenian one. The popularity of Armenia has grown these days, ”Irina Tyurina said in an interview with RUSARMINFO.

At the same time, she noted that most of the tourists are not in a hurry to abandon the planned trip to Georgia: tourists change only the way to get and fly to Georgia through Yerevan.

According to the Association of Tour Operators of Russia, organized tourists are about 5-7 thousand, and independent travelers are 2-3 times more. Rosturizm voices other figures: 3.5 thousand people.
