Turkiye’s Tourism Revenue Reached $26.3 Billion In 2017
Turkiye is becoming one of the top destinations for British holidaymakers, according to the United Kingdom’s giant tour operator Thomas Cook.
According to chief executive Peter Fankhauser, early figures for this year show a shift towards east of Spain for summer 2018 with “Turkiye the stand-out market so far.”
According to the latest figures, summer 2018 is 34 percent sold, 3 percent higher than this time last year. In the U.K., average selling prices are up 6 percent.
Turkiye’s tourism revenue reached $26.3 billion in 2017 with more than 38 million foreigners visiting the country, according to official figures.
Thomas Cook, which pioneered the package holiday concept when it was set up in 1841, is more exposed to Turkiye than its larger rival Touristic Union International (TUI) Group.
