After cancellation of visas to the UAE the passenger traffic to Dubai has increased by three times

“Kurumoch” International Airport (forms part of Airports of Regions holding) observes more than a three-fold increase in the passenger traffic to Dubai, following the results of February, 2017. During the month this destination was used by 2,4 thousand people, which is 224% more than in the February of 2016. By way of comparison, the growth of the aggregate international passenger traffic of the airport of Samara during February amounted to 82%.

One of the main reasons of the sharp increase in the passenger traffic in this destination is the resolution on liberalisation of visa regime between the UAE and Russia. Beginning with February 1, 2017, RF nationals, planning tourist visits to the UAE, don't need to obtain an electronic visa beforehand. Visas are issued free of charge on arrival to the country (before, the cost of the visa for an adult traveller was 85 dollars). The airport statistics reflect the impact of the said factor: in January 2017, inspite of long holidays, the passenger traffic from “Kurumoch” to Dubai increased in comparison with January 2016 just by 63%.

Please, keep in mind, that one may get from Samara to Dubai by direct flights of  “flydubai” airline and charter flights of “Royal Flight” airline. Detailed schedule is available on the web-site of the airport http://samara.aero/ru/raspisanie_reysov.
