Azerbaijan, Baku, July 31 / Trend U. Ismayilova /
Number of tourists leaving or arriving in Azerbaijan is not reduced due to two laboratory analyses on swine flu (A/H1/N1) in Azerbaijan, head of tourism sector of the Azerbaijani ministry of culture and tourism, Aydin Ismiyev, said on July 31.
"Almost all tickets were bought by people leaving for tourist trips for the nearest weeks," Ismiyev said.
He said that number of tourists is not reduced on internal market. It is impossible to cease it.
Imiyev said that if prophylactic measures against swine flu are toughened at all check-points, as well as resort zones, it is possible to avoid reduction of tourists.
