The Russian aircraft will continue in Antalya until the first week of November with very good weather for the Russian guests who can not go to Egypt because of the fact that the Russian market very much In addition, Israel and the Middle East are still in high density, and in our internal market we have a meeting holiday so our hotels have a high capacity.
