Russia’s Azur Air flies in over 330 Russian tourists on its return to Sri Lanka.

Daily FT: Russia’s largest charter airline Azur Air last week resumed its direct flight services between Moscow and Sri Lanka.
The first flight FZ 1611 arrived at the Bandaranaike International Airport 9:30 a.m. and was welcomed with the traditional water salute.
Over 330 Russian tourists arrived in the flight and they were warmly welcomed by the airport officials.
This new direct flight service has been started with the aim of promoting tourism by giving Russian tourists the experience of visiting Sri Lanka.
Azur Air will be operating in a number of cities, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnoyarsk and Novosibirik. It is believed that these operations will contribute significantly to improve tourism in Sri Lanka as Russia is one of the most important tourism hubs for the country.
Former Russian Ambassador Udayanga Weerathunga, Tourism Secretary Chulananda Perera and airport officials were present on this occasion.

OSL take:

There has been an increase in the number of international airlines operating flights to Sri Lanka, which is a clear indication of a growth in foreign travellers to the country. Russia has become one of Sri Lanka’s key tourist source markets with local tourism authorities also carrying out several promotional campaigns targeting Russian tourists. Given the growth momentum in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry and the growing business potential in the industry, Russian businesses/investors could also look at exploring business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka, especially in the tourism industry. Apart from being promoted as a must visit tourist destination by the international media, Sri Lanka is also working towards becoming an emerging business destination in the South Asian region. The country’s geographical positioning in the Indian Ocean and the many trade agreements as well as trade concessions enjoyed by the country have also placed Sri Lanka in a position of prominence in the region. Apart from Russian tourists, Russian businesses/investors could also explore the expanding opportunities in Sri Lanka.
