Published on : Saturday, October 12, 2019

The rise in flight and traffic of passengers in Cappadocia, one of the leading tourism destinations in Turkey, continues with the growing interest of tourists. The passengers using the airport in Cappadocia, which is considered world’s one of the largest hot air balloon centers regarding average annual flight numbers, traffic volume and number of days flown, increased to 372,000 with a nine month’s rise of 28%, as the air traffic in the region rose 17% to 2,278. In the first nine months, 2.9 million people visited Cappadocia museums, and particularly the rise in arrivals from three Far Eastern countries – China, South Korea and Japan – positively affected the rise in the number of passengers using the Cappadocia Airport.

 

In 8 months, the Chinese tourist number coming to Turkey increased by 12.66% to 292,000 while the number of South Korean tourists rose by 36.15% to 141,000. On the other hand, the Japanese tourist number witnessed a 31% increase to 67,000, thus bringing mobility to Cappadocia airport.

 

Cappadocia is one of the well-known destinations visited by Chinese tourists in Turkey. So, Turkish Airlines (THY) have introduced more flights from Istanbul Airport to Cappadocia to three frequencies a day and Anadolujet from Sabiha Gökçen to two rounds. In the meantime, there are a total of 260 balloons and 31 balloon tour enterprises in Nevşehir.
