“Subject to all sanitary safety protocols, the first flight of the Conviasa airline on the Caracas-Moscow route with 90 passengers on-board arrived in the Bolivarian Republic today,” Padron wrote.
In addition, Russian Ambassador to Egypt, Georgy Borisenko, hopes that flights to Egyptian resorts will also be resumed in the coming months, RadioSputnik reports. He clarified that guided by the instructions of the presidents of Russia and Egypt, the aviation authorities and security agencies are already working on this issue.
Also, Italy, Austria, and Germany may become the next European countries that will open their air borders for Russians, according to the vice-president of the Russian Union of Travel Industry Yuri Barzykin. The condition for accepting tourists is the recognition by European countries of the Russian vaccine against COVID-19, Yuri claims. He suggests that these countries may open their borders in late summer or early autumn, Ura.ru quotes.
