In St. Petersburg, the situation with the mass falsification of airline tickets for tourists. As a result, 133 tourists who could not fly to Hainan suffered.
Experts familiar with the situation told a InfoGroup correspondent that they are talking about the flight of the airline IFly. Tourists arrived from the local travel company "East Tour" for a flight to Hainan. However, during landing it turned out that the air tickets from tourists are fake.
Who organized the falsification of air tickets and at what stage it happened is not yet clear. At the moment, regulators have already figured out how this situation occurred. The fate of the tourists is still unknown, but it is clear that they will not fly out on this flight. Also on the plane arrived a group of Chinese tourists - who landed safely on the flight.
According to the latest data, the flight was the final one in the charter chain, first of all “exported” for the Chinese tourist traffic. The airline sent out a warning that the program was completed and, accordingly, the sale of tickets there and back is closed. However, the affected tourists received just such tickets. As specified in the Federal Air Transport Agency, the export flight for the Chinese and the last in the chain (on the 330 seats 130 Chinese passengers). It was banned from selling tickets to all tour operators and consolidators for Russian citizens. All tickets were issued fictitious and without return tickets.
Recall that tourists got into frauds with fake tickets from time to time. For example, in February 2015, more than 20 tourists fell victim to alleged online fraud in the sale of airline tickets. According to RBC, tourists purchased tickets through the website broniruem-online.ru. The service offered to buy tickets at a discount 7%. As a result, tourists paid for a ticket on the site using a card. Funds were “successfully” written off, and no confirmation of the purchase was received. At the same time, the phone number of the Online Tour on South-Western agency, which does not deal with booking tickets, was indicated as a contact phone for tourists.
In 2016, an employee of a travel agency from the Bureysky District in the Amur Region received a suspended sentence for fraud. As it turned out, the tourists were sold fake tickets. In just two months of work, an employee of a travel agency deceived eight tourists. The deception was opened only at the airport, when it turned out that tourists were not registered in any systems. Total scammer has appropriated 120 thousands.
PS: the editorial office of TURPROM received a comment from the airline representatives with details:
“18 of April for check-in for the flight F7-9897 of“ I Fly ”airlines on the route St. Petersburg (Pulkovo) - Haikou (China) turned to dozens of Russians who are not in the passenger list. The customer of this flight is a Chinese tour operator Tempus Tour. At the same time, all Chinese tourists (131 people) have already been registered, ”said Alexander Korovka, a representative of I Fly airline. According to him, the airline, of course, can not take to transport passengers who are not in the previously announced list of tickets issued by the tour operator.
“A representative of the airline at Pulkovo Airport reports that for the duration of 2 hours there are dozens of people in the check-in area who want to fly to Haikou, but their data is not in the system. Tourists make travel vouchers from Russian tour operators with whom the airline has no contracts or obligations for air transportation. At the customer of the flight requested information on these passengers. At the moment, there is no confirmation from the Chinese side, ”the expert also said.

According to official information from the Federal Tourism Agency, the department requested detailed information from IFly regarding the cancellation of the departure of tourists from St. Petersburg to Haikou (China) on April 18. Also requests were made to tour operators in order to clarify the current situation and the measures taken by them to resolve it. Official requests were also sent to them.
“According to the information available at the moment, more than 130 Russian tourists who were supposed to fly out to Fr. Hainan, could not use the paid air travel due to their absence in the list of passengers of the flight. However, according to information from tour operators, the money for the tourist product was fully paid by them to the Chinese host. In the current situation, tour operators will fulfill their obligations in full in accordance with the terms of contracts for the implementation of the tourist product, ”Rostourism states.

It is also said that the agency “keeps the situation under control”, is in constant communication with Rosaviation, the airline and tour operators. An appeal was sent to the Chinese authorities.

"The initial analysis of the situation shows that the cause of the incident could be a multi-level chain of intermediaries between tour operators, receiving parties and airlines," - also noted in the department. In addition, they recalled that in accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, if a consumer leaves the territory of Russia, the performer (tour operator or travel agent) is obliged no later than 24 hours before the start of the trip to give the consumer a ticket confirming the right to transport (including charter) to destination and back. For non-compliance with this requirement, the responsibility to the tourist is borne by the tour operator who formed the tourist product and purchased the relevant services from third parties.
