It is important to emphasize almost tripled passenger traffic to CIS countries, which increased from 11.4 to 30.4 thousand passengers. Such dynamics of transportation to CIS and foreign countries is explained both by the opening of new flights (Almaty, Tel Aviv, Antalya, Istanbul), and by changes of visa regimes.
