“This summer, the Airport of Simferopol functions under the conditions of the record passenger traffic flow that can be explained by the crisis of the international air traffic and closing of borders of popular foreign resorts. Both traffic and route network have reached maximum rates for the long period of time. This year, Crimea was linked to sixty cities by direct flights”, — Chief Commercial Officer of PLC “International Airport of Simferopol” Sergey Dyaikin told.
