Turkey creates a separate airline to transport Russian tourists

The sanctions imposed by the West have made flights from Russia to other countries of the world very difficult, but different scenarios are being used to solve the problem, and not only by Russia itself. For example, Turkey is creating a separate company that will deliver Russian tourists to local resorts. She was named Southwind. Earlier, the application for the establishment of the airline was accepted by the General Directorate of Civil Aviation of Turkey.

In early April, the Sabah newspaper reported that the Turkish authorities were planning to implement a three-stage roadmap to attract tourists from Russia in 2022. One of the points was the creation of a new airline, which will be involved in the transportation of up to 1 million Russian tourists. Southwind is expected to operate five Airbus aircraft, three wide-bodied and two narrow-bodied, in the first phase. The new Turkish airline, potentially very popular in Russia, will start operating at the end of May.
