Putin: 140 million tourists should travel to Russia annually

Vladimir Putin, during his speech at SPIEF, promised to create accessible and comfortable conditions for recreation for Russian citizens in the country: “The development of domestic tourism is one of the priorities of our long-term strategy.”

By 2030, tourism revenues in the state budget should increase significantly: its share in total GDP will reach 5%. At the same time, “the number of trips with accommodation in domestic hotels should increase to 140 million people per year.”

To provide ample recreation opportunities for citizens, the government plans to build more accommodation facilities, parks, and resorts. Within 6 years, thousands of cultural monuments are going to be reconstructed in the country so that they act as attractions for tourists.

Commenting on Vladimir Putin’s speech, subscribers to the telegram channel “Roof of TourDom” note that for traveling around our country, the issue of the cost of air travel is more important than the tariffs for hotel accommodation. “We need affordable prices for tickets to travel to a vacation spot. Otherwise, it turns out that a tour abroad is cheaper than a trip around Russia.”

We note that in the decree “On the national development goals of the Russian Federation for the period until 2030 and for the future until 2036”, signed in early May, Vladimir Putin has already touched upon the topic of accessibility of domestic air travel for Russians. According to the document, “aviation mobility of the population” should increase by 50% in the coming years. The decree does not specify how exactly the required indicators will be achieved – by reducing the cost of air tickets, increasing the number of flights, or otherwise.

The development of aircraft manufacturing will also serve the purpose of accessibility of air travel. The same document states that by 2030, the fleet of Russian airlines should consist of at least half of domestically produced aircraft.

Earlier, the head of state instructed the government to organize financing of the national project “Tourism and Hospitality Industry” for the period until 2030 for a total amount of 403 billion rubles.
