MOSCOW, 1 Nov. Tour operator Brisco, as a separate legal entity, will not have serious negative consequences in connection with the air crash Airbus-321 of airline “Kogalymavia”, but may change the carrier, said Sunday the Executive Director of the Association of tour operators of Russia (ATOR) Maya Lomidze.
“Large consequences for the tour operator in connection with the plane crash, it probably won’t. The tour operator is a separate legal entity. The airline will be a serious test of the technical condition of the fleet. The tour operator may not have to do with this. So I think that the tour operator has serious problems”, — commented the expert.
The interlocutor of Agency has specified that now each airline “Kogalymavia” check before departure, this means that if any aircraft something happens, “Kogalymavia” will be responsible up to the criminal.
“Another issue is that the tour operator may have to change the partner carrier. But problems need to be solved on a rolling basis. While checking the airlines just initiated, it will run until 20-th of November. Only then will we be able to say, do I need to change the carrier or not” — said Lomidze.
“Despite the fact that Brisco and “Kogalymavia” are in the same holding, the operator easily can do it. “Biblio-Globus” and “Transaero” ties were much denser than Brisco and “Kogalymavia”. They have no strict obligations with respect to partnership”, — said the representative of ATOR.
The Airbus-321 of airline “Kogalymavia”, who on Saturday was flying from Sharm El Sheikh to St Petersburg, crashed in the Sinai. Onboard there were 217 passengers and seven crew members. They all died.
