To quote CEO Dietmar Gunz, ‘’ There is no reason not to travel to Turkey now. In fact, Turkey has never been more attractive than today. Regardless of all the topics discussed nowadays in media, Turkey remains the most important holiday destination for us. I believe that we will have a great summer this year.’’

For German vacationers, Turkey has been one of the most popular travel destinations so far. However, in the last two years, the number of German tourists has decreased largely because of safety issues and conflicts between Turkey and its neighboring countries.
