Lanta Tour Goes Bust, Vacations Spoilt
On Friday evening, January 27, one of the biggest tour operators Lanta Tour Voyage announced bankruptcy taking everybody aback. The news came out of the blue for its customers, many of whom were the residents of Nizhny Novgorod. Lanta Tour Voyage had rather firm positions in the city with the local headquarters and representative offices. It aggressively advertised direct flights from Nizhny Novgorod to Bangkok.

Failed Vacation
One of the Russias oldest and biggest tour operators Lanta Tour has collapsed. Several thousand tourists found themselves in a dismal situation: some had to stay at home, others could not return from abroad. Some residents of Nizhny Novgorod were among the affected customers. Lanta Tour informed that it suspended operations a few days ago on its site. Being financially troubled, the operator failed to cover travel expenses.

People of the Week
Maya Lomidze, the CEO of the Russian Tour Operators Association, told what the tourists who bought a tour from the bankrupt tour operator Lanta Tour Voyage should do. Up to six thousand people were affected, she said. For the time being the total damage is hard to estimate, but the 100-million-rubles insurance should be enough to satisfy all the claims.

No Trust for Tour Operators
When big tour operators leave the market one after the other, as it happened with the oldest and biggest market player Lanta Tour this weekend, it becomes hard, or almost impossible, to make out where trouble may come from. Experts say, today a common customer cannot tell for sure which of the tour operators are trustworthy.

Lanta Makes Emigrants
Nizhny Novgorod residents were affected by the bankruptcy of Lanta Tour Voyage as well. Some residents of the Nizhny Novgorod region got stuck abroad, an unofficial source reports. According to a federal news agency, a resident of Nizhny Novgorod had simply to punch out his passport closed in the strong box of one of Pattaya hotels (Thailand). The hotel manager ordered the security to hold passports and valuables of Russians. On top of that, Russian tourists could not take their possessions from their hotel rooms unless they paid for their stay instead of the tour operator. Nobody knows how many people from Nizhny Novgorod got stuck abroad because of Lanta Tour.
