Turkey Tourism to launch new

Turkey Tourism is working to launch a website exclusively for the Indian market. This India-specific website will offer up-to-date information about deals for Indian tourists and destination hotspots of Turkey. Plans are to launch the website by end of the year.

In order to attract more tourists from the growing Indian outbound market Turkey Tourism will conduct online training programme for the Indian travel trade through this website. Agents who successfully complete the training programme will be awarded a Turkey Specialist certificate.

Additionally, Turkey Tourism is to organise tourism roadshows in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Gujarat from November 11 onwards.

Speaking about the ongoing unrest in Turkish capital, Istanbul Ozgur Ayturk, Culture & Tourism Counsellor, Turkish Embassy in India, said, “It may have slightly affected Istanbul, the capital city of Turkey. Otherwise tourism in Turkey is doing well. We receive a lot of tourists from India. Cities such as Antalya, Cappadocia, Ismail and Istanbul receive a large number of Indian travellers.”
