Sochi international airport intends to develop regular direct flights to Germany in 2017 after the opening of the first winter Charter flights, told RIA Novosti the General Director of “Basel Aero”, which manages airports in Krasnodar region Leonid Sergeev.

As previously reported, 15 January-26 February 2017 starts Charter flight programme from Berlin to Sochi. The flights will be operated weekly, on Sundays. Such frequency of flights connected with the specific approach of German tourists to the organization of a ski holiday – they prefer to spend in the resorts at least one or two weeks. Partner program is the resort “Rosa Khutor. However, the Sochi airport plans to develop further cooperation with the German airlines.

“We really want to establish air communication with Germany: Frankfurt, Berlin other major cities. Should be traffic in two directions, because we have the greatest business partner — Germany, and a lot of Russian lives and works there. They need to make those connections. So I think that Germany will now be priority, and we know that there is interest and there is an agreement for a very quick visa in the consulates of Germany,” — said Sergeyev.

He added that on opening regular flights we can talk closer to the summer, as for the first half of 2017, the airline already made the plans and schedules.
