The struggle for summer Turkey-2018 is intensified
Another major tour operator declared about increasing of regional transportation to several Turkish resorts. The management of Coral Travel tour operator reported that in the upcoming season there will be flights from 45 Russian cities to Antalya (+4 against the previous season), to Dalaman - from 10 cities (+3), to Alanya - from 6 cities (+ 2). Earlier, the increase of the flight program was also been announced by Biblio-Globus, ANEX Tour and NTK Intourist. According to the Deputy Director of Coral Travel Selcuk Bugay, the expansion of flight programs to Turkey is connected with the high rates of early booking of this direction. In comparison with the previous year the volumes of early bookings in the company increased by 141%. "I recommend you to book before the end of March, since then prices will be much higher", - the company's top manager said. Meanwhile, according to travel agents, the June flights for this company are filled already today. According to observers, the growing ambitions of the major players on the Turkish market may lead to some oversupply of transportation. And taken into account the intensification of foreign and local markets, which is noted by Turkish hoteliers, there will be also a shortage of accommodation. The winners will be those who have the maximum number of rooms on the guarantee. As the representatives of Coral Travel said, this season the company received quotas in 800 hotels.
