The COVID-19 situation and related restrictions led to a reduction in passenger numbers, including children travelling in summer, cancellation of a number of trains on which LLC NTS sold goods and provided catering services, a ban on visiting dining carriages (during the pandemic until July 2020, dining carriages only provided takeaway services), and a ban on sales of merchandise to passengers as well as alcoholic drinks in dining carriages (Urgent Order No. 2253 dated 29 March 2020). This all resulted in LLC NTS’s revenue dropping to the 2019 level of RUB 700.2 million, or by 29.9 %, in 2020.

  • Develop rail tourism by building up new tourist-oriented rail routes

  • Meet foreign and domestic demand for visiting Russia’s cultural and historical centres

LLC Russian Railway Tours

LLC Russian Railway Tours’ key activities:

  • Organising own rail tours
  • Organising rail services, chartered VIP rail services and tourist travel services for RZD Holding employees
  • Servicing tourist groups organised by travel agencies as well as corporate customers in rented trailing carriages or special trains

The number of passengers serviced by LLC Russian Railways Tours fell to 197,700 in 2020, or by 70 % year-on-year, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The number of passengers serviced in the Tourism segment decreased due to border closures with EU countries and China, resulting in suspended sales of some international tours – the most profitable products offered by the Company.

Due to mass event bans during 2020, the Company signed one corporate services contract (the Comprehensive Services segment).

The Rail Services business, comprising children and shift worker transportation services, shrank due to the lack of travelling children. On the contrary, shift worker transportation services have recovered to 2019 levels. The Company also started a new project to lease out carriages for shift worker accommodation.
