Russia's largest cruise companies announced the creation of the “River Alliance”
The three largest tourist companies of the river market announced the creation of the “River alliance” to jointly promote their products on the market. The agency “Interfax” was informed by Svetlana Goncharova, the deputy director general of one of them – the company “Mosturflot”. In addition to “Mosturflot” the alliance includes “Vodokhod” and “Infoflot”. The members of the alliance say that other companies may also join in: the selection of partners will be based on the list of services provided, as well as on the company's service standards. In addition, new community members will have equal rights to participate in its activities.
As the representatives of the alliance noted the ultimate goal will be not only the promotion of any brand, but also the attention to the products and services as a whole.
Another object of the alliance will be to maintain the quality of service, safety and comfort at the same level, as well as the development of new, eligible market products.
“River Alliance” will develop their own logo, which will mark all vessels of the member companies. Their first event will be the grand opening of large cruise ship navigation in Moscow on April 30.
However, the 81th passenger navigation in the capital was opened on April 11. First in this year the excursion steamboats resorted from the pier in Gorky Park.
As the chairman of the Moscow Committee for Tourism and Hospitality Management Sergei Shpilko noted, despite the fact that the winter navigation on the Moscow River this year did not stop, the main season is open right now. From that day on a full scale the city piers are open and new sightseeing and entertainment programs for everyone begin to operate.
