The Turkish tourism industry is witnessing developments that will help it save at least part of this year’s season, which has been battered by the coronavirus pandemic. The southern Mediterranean resort city of Antalya on Wednesday welcomed its long-awaited first charter plane carrying British tourists, after flights resumed with the U.K. following a nearly three-month hiatus due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Sector representatives are also hopeful for a rebound of Russian tourists after Ankara and Moscow agreed to resume flights as of July 15. They say some 3 million Russian tourists could arrive in the resort towns through the rest of the season. #dailysabah #myicmeler
