Turkey has experienced a pandemic and conflict in Ukraine, but earthquake issues are creating an additional burden, said Orhan Sankar, IEC coordinator for Pegas Touristik.
— After the pandemic and the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Turkey was on the verge of a new seismic crisis. In the summer of 2023, new challenges await us, writes Turizm Guncel.
According to the expert, tourists are now afraid of new earthquakes in Turkey. To date, some potential customers in the country have already canceled their reservations. The number of flights from CIS countries to Istanbul and Antalya has also been reduced to a minimum.
Another problem was the rising prices of Turkish tourist packages. The reason for this was the high prices of ground handling services from hotels in Turkey, as well as the increase in flight time due to the closure of airspace. As a result, Vietnam, Egypt and Thailand will impose competition on the usual Russian resorts.
Orhan Sankar noted that today Turkey must explain to potential tourists the security measures taken. Also, hotels should reduce prices to a “reasonable level” taking into account the new risks and the cost of flights.
