As it became known, the number of cancellations from travel agencies does not exceed 1-2 per 100 booked tours. Few calls from tourists with questions about the possibility of canceling trips. As emphasized in the PCT, there would be more cancellations if the Russian authorities recommended not to visit Turkey and obliged the operators to give a 100% refund to customers.

For example, now a ticket from Moscow to Istanbul, from there to Venice and back to Moscow via Istanbul costs 150 thousand rubles, and no one will return them, ”the PCT explained, Interfax reports.
