From December, Goa to receive one charter per week from KazakhstanEven as tour operators in Goa are yet to receive any confirmation on charter arrivals from Russian destinations, one charter a week from Kazakhstan will land in the state from next month. Operations will be handled by MinarTravels (India).

“We have got confirmation for one charter a week from Almaty, Kazakhstan, and the first arrival is scheduled for December 9. We are also trying for charters from Ukraine,” Abida Kumar, vice-president, operations, Minar Travels (India), told TOI. Besides Russia, over the past decade, Goa has regularly received charters from the two CIS (commonwealth of independent states) countries.

The online travel company has partnered with IndiGo to launch a first-of-its-kind charter holiday service to the island.

With Russia still reeling under the impact of the pandemic, Goa will have to wait for a while, and may see charters from Russian destinations from January, operators feel. More than half of the charter tourists that visit Goa are Russians, while the UK is also an important market. The first charter from the UK will land in Goa on December 13.Operators are seeing healthy bookings from the UK since India started issuing visas mid-last month, even as the ban on international travel will remain in force till the end of this month.

The Travel & Tourism industry continues to make appeals for reopening of international scheduled flights to save the industry and jobs.
