A Russian tourist, who had a rest in Crimea, showed those wishing to visit the resort the real situation at the airport before departure. The traveler shared his pictures and observations in his TravelManiac blog on the Yandex.Zen platform.
According to the traveler, now, due to the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, there are very few people in the Simferopol air harbor, and when he flew off the peninsula in September, there were crowds of tourists in front of the check-in counters.
“At the same time, the terminal was buzzing inside from the voices of thousands of passengers and the rumble of suitcase wheels. Then, in the waiting area before the control and inspection, it was not possible to find an empty chair, even despite the social distancing stickers on the middle ones - everyone was busy. Now the hall is free, and there are plenty of free seats, ”the Russian explained.
In addition, the tourist noticed that a month ago, almost none of those flying away wore masks, while at the moment most travelers wear protective equipment at the airport.
The blogger also said that there are no usual queues either in the stores of the air harbor or to board the liner. “The plane to Moscow itself was about 60 percent full. I talked with the flight attendants, they say that the number of flying has dropped sharply. And this is with a decrease in the number of flights to Crimea at the end of the season, "he summed up.
Earlier in October, Sevastopol was offered to be closed to tourists due to a sharp increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection and a shortage of beds in hospitals. This initiative was made by the vice-speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Sevastopol, head of the LDPR faction Ilya Zhuravlev. He called the situation with the spread of coronavirus "avalanche".
Over the past month, Crimea has broken the anti-record for the number of people infected with coronavirus per day several times. In total, 8,533 cases of infection were recorded on the peninsula during the pandemic, with 146 new cases reported on October 27.
