At the Sochi airport, they plan to restore the “Olympic” technology of transferring luggage for flights abroad in order to make it easier for tourists to use the new “international hub”. We are talking about regular international flights of the Aeroflot group (through the Rossiya airline) from Sochi abroad.
The program has been launched since the beginning of April – and, according to experts, the number of transfer passengers from Sochi to Cairo, Antalya and Istanbul reaches 40-50% of all arrivals in Sochi. However, for the time being, an unpleasant surprise awaits such travelers in Sochi – the lack of transit with luggage, i.e. tourists have to wait for luggage after arrival, receive it, and then recheck it at international check-in.
The airport intends to make this task easier for tourists and to resume the operation of the baggage transit system, which was developed for the 2014 Olympics. “Before, there was no need for baggage transfer technology. Now the market has such a demand. Yes, now passengers need to receive luggage and check in, but this will not be for long, ”said a representative of the Sochi airport.
Recall that in March Aeroflot announced the launch of a large-scale program of regular flights from Sochi abroad on Sukhoi SuperJet 100 aircraft. Up to ten liners of this type will be based in Sochi to carry out the flight program. The carrier will fly from Sochi to six countries and 17 destinations. Among them are Armenia (Yerevan), Egypt (Cairo), Israel (Tel Aviv), Kazakhstan (Aktau, Aktobe, Almaty, Atyrau, Nur-Sultan), Turkey (Antalya, Bodrum, Dalaman, Istanbul) and Uzbekistan (Bukhara, Samarkand, Tashkent, Urgench, Fergana). In addition, international flights will connect with hubs in Moscow (Sheremetyevo), St. Petersburg and Krasnoyarsk. Read the details here.
