Now imagine that you’re at the check-in desk and reproduce the similar dialogue with your tutor. And don’t forget to change the details.
Answer the following questions.
How often do you go by plane somewhere?
What was your longest flight?
Are you afraid of flying by planes?
What are the main advantages of taking a plane? And what about disadvantages?
What stages do you need to go through at the airport before you get on a plane?
What are the necessary things you always put in your hand luggage?
Tell about your last flight. What airline did you choose? How long was the flight? Where did you head to? Did you like the experience?
Do you usually choose economy or business class? What are the differences between them?
What things can help one cope with the long flight?
If you had to spend at the airport around 24 hours, what would you do?
Now let’s imagine kinda silly but anyway possible situation. You were on vacation and bought a really-really expensive and rare bottle of whiskey. Doesn’t matter if you bought it for yourself or as a gift for someone. Anyway, you put it in your bag and went to the airport intending to head for your home, sweet home. And when you’re going through the security check, a polite smiling woman asks you to open your bag, and you see this glorious bottle inside that literally cost you a fortune. Of course, you aren’t allowed to take it on the plane. So, your actions?
Will you throw it away and pretend you don’t care (and then maybe shed a tear in the toilet)?
Will you drink the whole bottle in front of the amazed queue? What might be the consequences of it?
Will you cancel your flight, go back and make your vacation a little longer?
Will you try bribing the TSA agents?
Will you share the bottle with all the people around?
Or maybe any other ideas?
Try making a funny story out of it.
Have you ever had to leave anything precious for you at the security check? If so, what was it?
Надеемся, этот урок прокачает скилл уверенности и владения “аэропортным” английским ваших учеников, и они будут летать с невозмутимостью британских джентльменов и делиться с вами историями о своих увлекательных путешествиях.

How to Visit Russia with an eVisa
Using the new electronic visas for Russia will be very easy.
Once the request is approved, the visa will be sent electronically to the holidaymaker. It is important to print out the confirmation before traveling to Russia.
Visitors will then need to carry the visa with them and present it at the border to the Russian immigration officers.
Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin approved a list of 29 eligible border crossing points to enter Russia with an eVisa. These include, among others:
- Belgorod International Airport
- Volgograd International Airport
- Koltsovo International Airport (Yekaterinburg)
- Kazan International Airport
- Krasnodar International Airport
- Moscow airport
- Strigino International Airport (Nizhny Novgorod)
- Novosibirsk Tolmachevo Airport
- Platov International Airport (Rostov-on-Don)
- Kurumoch International Airport (Samara)
- St. Petersburg International Airport
Eligible seaports include:
- St. Petersburg
Land border crossing points that can be reached by car include:
- Mamonovo (Grzhekhotki and Gronovo)
The list will be expanded as further crossing points will be equipped for eVisa checks.
What Will Be Different From the Current Electronic Visas?
Not all information about the new eVisas has been disclosed yet. However, we already know that the application process will be just as quick and straightforward as that for the 3 existing electronic visas. The online visa requirements are also likely to be similar.
However, there are 2 main differences that are likely to be well-received among travelers.
E-visa validity: more time in Russia
Although the current eVisa validity is of 30 days, eVisa holders are only allowed a maximum stay of 8 days in Russia since the moment they first enter the country. As the Second Secretary of the Russian Embassy in the Philippines Denis M. Karenin commented, this is just “enough time to visit St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad”.
The new country-wide eVisas will allow foreigners to stay in the country for up to 16 days. Moreover, they will remain valid for 60 days. This will be especially helpful for those who wish to explore more than one city or/and arrive in Russia after a long flight from a distant country.
More territory covered: non region-specific visas
The current eVisas for the Far East, St Petersburg, and Kaliningrad only grant their holder entry into a specific Russian region. Once they are done visiting, foreigners must leave Russia from a border crossing point belonging to the same region they first entered. Should foreigners wish to see another part of the country (for example, both St Petersburg and Moscow) they will have to apply for another relevant visa.
The new eVisas will apply to most cities within Russia. This will give tourists much greater freedom of movement. The number of entry points eligible for eVisas is also expected to increase.
What Russian eVisas Are Already Available?
For now, the eVisas are available for 3 Russian regions only:
- The Far East District
- The Kaliningrad Oblast
- The St Petersburg and Leningrad region
Electronic visas have been a huge success thanks to their convenience, affordability, and much shorter waiting times.
Other ways in which the government has facilitated international travel and communications include:
Are Russian Visas Free?
The vast majority of Russian visas require the payment of an application fee. This goes to cover the processing costs of the visa.
Fortunately, electronic visas are usually cheaper since the amount of both paperwork and manpower required to review applications is lower. However, fees apply to eVisas too, and this will include the new electronic permits to be launched in 2021.
Who Can Get an eVisa for Russia?
The new Russian eVisa will become available to citizens of over 50 countries around the world, making Russia significantly more accessible for international tourism.
Eligible nations will include, for example, EU member states, China, India, Japan, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, and all other nationalities who can already apply for the region-specific Russian eVisas.
Why Is Russia Launching New Visas?
Home to 23 UNESCO World Heritage Sites and famous for its unique architecture and stunning natural beauty, Russia is already the ninth most visited country in the world, with 33 million foreigners choosing it as their holiday destination in 2013.
However, the government is looking to expand the sector even further. Russian President Vladimir Putin has announced his plan to raise the annual tourism revenue of the country to $15.5 billion by the end of his presidential term in 2024.
As part of the national Digital Economy Program, different types of eVisas have been launched recently to encourage foreign arrivals. The traditional paper tourist visa for Russia requires applicants to submit their papers in person at a Russian embassy or consulate. Moreover, travelers have to obtain an invitation letter from a Russian entity in order for their visa application to be considered.
The new eVisas change things dramatically. Without having to queue at the embassy, eligible tourists can simply apply online in minutes from anywhere in the world. All they need is an internet connection and a few supporting documents like their valid passport.
