The authorities of the Krasnodar Territory want to see Gelendzhik as a year-round resort, for which they plan to build a new terminal at the local airport. "Vestnik ATOR" learned from the experts of the tourism industry what the resort needs for the growth of tourist traffic in the off-season.
According to the press service of the Krasnodar Territory Administration, Gelendzhik annually receives more than four million tourists. Nevertheless, with such a flow of tourists, the local airport in 2018 served only about 294 thousand people: in the summer season, 10 airlines from 13 cities flew to the airport.
At the beginning of December 2018, the architectural concept of the new terminal of Gelendzhik airport was chosen: its area will be more than 9000 m 2, the capacity is 890 passengers per hour and 635,000 passengers per year. The construction of the airport complex is planned to begin by February 2020, and the commissioning of the new terminal is expected at the end of 2021. In addition to the airport building, auxiliary service and technical buildings, parking lots for cars, parking for taxis and intercity buses will be built.
According to the regional authorities, they strive to make Gelendzhik a year-round resort. For this, tourists, as emphasized in the press service, should be able to fly to the city in the off-season.
According to the information of tour operators, which is confirmed by the statistics of the airport, at the moment air transportation to Gelendzhik is not in demand among organized tourists.
“Firstly, there are few flights to Gelendzhik airport from the regions and Moscow, and secondly, the price of the flight is too high. Most tourists come to Gelendzhik by rail to Novorossiysk, by personal vehicles or by purchasing bus tours from the regions, "said experts of the Multitour tour operator.
As the specialists of the Dolphin tour operator add, many tourists who purchase vouchers to hotels and resorts in Gelendzhik now prefer to fly to Anapa, since more flights from the regions are carried out here, and often such a flight is cheaper.

Experts assess Gelendzhik's prospects to function as a full-fledged year-round resort ambiguously.

In addition, in Gelendzhik, a number of companies see a shortage of accommodation facilities capable of receiving tourists with different needs and budgets.
