This year, Indian tourist arrival in Turkey is expected to rise!

Published on : Friday, January 11, 2019

The Turkish Tourism Board located in India has declared lately that the number of Indian tourists travelling to Turkey has a possibility to reach almost 250,000 in 2019. The tourism board calculates that over 160,000 Indian tourists travelled to Turkey till December 2018. Also, they have claimed that with inauguration of the new Istanbul airport, the tourist number is hoped to increase even more.

 

To quote Deniz Ersöz, Culture & Tourism Counsellor, Turkish Culture and Tourism Office in India, “By the end of 2018, Turkey hosted more than 40 million tourists and as a result Turkey ranks 6th in terms of the international tourist arrivals in the world. Istanbul and Antalya are amongst the top 5 cities in Europe in terms of internatonal tourist arrivals by hosting more than 12 million tourist in one year.  The numbers for India are positive too, however we know that it could be much better. In 2019, Turkey Tourism will focus on highlighting the uniquness of Turkey in India with special attention on cultural heritage sites like Gobeklitepe, Ayasofya and Topkapi.”

 

“As the Tourism Counsellor, I know that Turkish people have keen interest to visit & explore India. However, lack of sufficient direct flights between both the countries and difficulty in procuring Indian visa for Turkish citizens hinders the arrival of Turkish tourists to India. With mutual efforts, we can overcome these problems and increase the mutual touristic flow between our countries. I also believe that the tourism authorities of both countries need to work in association with each other, so that both India & Turkey can achieve the target numbers.” added Deniz.
