The Soyuz TMA-14 is a planned 2009 flight to the International Space Station. It will transport 2 members of the Expedition 19 crew as well as space tourist Charles Simonyi on his second paying flight to the International Space Station. TMA-14 will be the 101st flight of a Soyuz spacecraft, the first flight launching in 1967. The Soyuz will most likely remain on board the space station for the remainder of the Expedition 19 increment to serve as an emergency escape vehicle.

pace tourism status

Soyuz TMA-14 (or Soyuz TMA-16) might well be the final flight of a space tourist to the International Space Station. With the retirement of the Space Shuttle and the extension of the crew of the station to six crew members, all Soyuz crew positions in the foreseeable future should be occupied by Expedition crew.

This will remain valid at least till another human spacecraft, most probably Orion, is able to service the International Space Station.
