The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA) has said that after two challenging years, the Turkish tourism sector was on the rise again with this remarkable increase in bookings for summer 2018. It predicted that tourism bookings for Turkey may even equal that of 2015.
ABTA said though it did not have the most current data from all travel companies, December 2017 data showed a 69 percent increase over the previous year.
It said in a statement that after two challenging years, Turkey is rising again thanks to a remarkable increase in bookings for summer 2018.
The travel companies in Turkey are reporting that bookings may be close to the levels achieved in 2015. It is no surprise that British tourists are returning to Turkey, as holidaymakers have presented a vacation worth their money in beautiful facilities.
Meanwhile, the Turkish Travel Agencies Association (TÜRSAB) revealed the data that some 2.5 million British tourists traveled to Turkey in 2015. That figure declined to 1,711,481 in 2016 and to 1,658,715 in 2017.
Thomas Cook is one of the world’s leading tour operators, commented that the number of customers who want to go on vacation in Turkey has increased.
