In 2021, Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Belarus and the United Arab Emirates are in the top in-demand destinations.
Even in 2020, when people, for obvious reasons, could not travel, the desire to fly remained, Spot writes citing Aviasales.uz.
Last year citizens of Uzbekistan most often looked for tickets to Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Belarus and South Korea. A year earlier, South Korea rounded out the top three, China was in fifth place.
Though the list of the most popular destinations has changed insignificantly, the cost of air tickets has increased markedly. One of the reasons is the sharp drop in demand. Thus, the average price of a flight to Russia increased by 18.2%, to Turkey – by 20.6%, and to Kazakhstan – by 45.6%.
The situation with domestic travel in 2020 was similar. Bookings were down by 66% and searches were down by 35%.
In 2021, the tourism market began to gradually recover. Russia, Kazakhstan, Turkey, Belarus and the United Arab Emirates are in the top in-demand destinations.
At the same time, the prices for air tickets have grown again. A flight to Russia costs $391 now, which is more expensive by 55% than in 2020. A ticket to Turkey costs around $359, up by 8% than last year.
