Russian tour operators will finish charter programs to Turkey after the first week of November
“Russian tour operators will offer tourists charter programs to Turkey until the first week of November”, - the Turkish Milliyet edition reports.
"The Russian tourists will arrive to Turkey until November 5. The season will be long, in particular - due to the ban of flights to Egypt", - the publication quotes the President of the Association of Hotel Management Etem Hakan Duran.
He also noted that tourists from Russia are attracted by affordable prices for vacation in Turkey, mainly in Antalya. According to him, despite the fact that the season is almost over, hotels are still full.
According to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of Turkey, in January-August 2017 the country was visited by 3.333 million Russian tourists, which is 10 times higher than in the same period of the last year.
This year can become a record for the entire history of Russian-Turkish tourism. It is expected that in 2017 Turkey will be visited by a maximum number of tourists from Russia.
