Collette has canceled operating tours in Russia and will withdraw from all other business interests in Russia “in support of freedom and a peaceful resolution,” it was announced via a press release. The organization, the release states, “will focus on announcing a commitment to support humanitarian organizations.”
The majority of Collette’s European tours are not, at this time, impacted by the conflict, and the tour operator does not expect any significant impact on tour operations in 2022.
“Our thoughts are with the people of Ukraine and we stand with them in support of freedom, a sincere hope for peace, and a rapid de-escalation of this conflict. We are committed to taking care of the places where we travel and will be announcing a commitment through our philanthropic arm to support humanitarian organizations on the ground to help those impacted by the crisis in Ukraine.” said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, President of Collette, in a statement.
