Russian Outbound Tourism Collapses amid Ukraine Invasion

DALLAS – ForwardKeys statistics show Russian outbound tourism has declined as a result of Russia’s military operations in Ukraine.

Already severely hampered by pandemic travel restrictions, February 2022 outbound international plane tickets from Russia were 42% of pre-pandemic levels in the week preceding the start of the war but decreased to 19% in the week after the invasion.

Since then, flight bookings have plummeted even further, hovering around 15%, according to ForwardKeys data.
