Where do Russians fly?
According to Tutu, most often Russians fly within Russia in the first half of the year — domestic destinations account for 84.2% of demand. A year ago, this figure was at the level of 87%. We are talking about the redistribution of the share: demand has grown both for tickets to the countries of near and far abroad, and for tickets within Russia.
The share of those traveling to neighboring countries increased from 10.5% to 12%, and those who buy tickets to non-CIS countries, from 1.8% to 3.3%. Purchases of tickets to Europe in the first quarter of 2023 decreased from 0.7% to 0.5%.
The top 5 countries where independent travelers fly in the first half of 2023 are Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan. They are followed by Belarus, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Turkey, UAE, Israel, Thailand, Egypt, South Korea. From European countries, Germany, Serbia, Italy, Spain, France are in demand.
On average, for tickets with a departure in the first half of the year, Russians pay 13,317 rubles for a round-trip ticket within Russia. To neighboring countries — 23,980 rubles in both directions, to non-CIS countries — 50,099 rubles, to Europe — 68,639 rubles round-trip.
The average check for flights to neighboring countries for the year increased by 4%, to non-CIS countries — by 38%, to Europe — by 63%. Flights from January 1 to June 30 were compared when purchased before April 20 with the same period last year.

According to Sravni, most often during the period, Russians take out insurance in Thailand, the Schengen countries, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Israel.
