Turkey has launched a vaccination drive for tourism professionals to improve a pivotal industry that is hugely impacted last year by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The program covers the chief players in the tourism industry, including employees of accommodation facilities and restaurants, staff at companies providing vehicles for tours and transfers, along with tourist guides. Over 1 million tourism industry workers will be inoculated in total as part of the campaign.
“It will be a major lift for the industry and a significant development regarding Turkey’s image and the safe tourism program that we are promoting,” said Volkan Yorulmaz, a board member of the Professional Hotel Managers Association of Turkey.
