Tourist flow from Ukraine to Turkey grows by 33%, not to decrease despite terrorist attacks

In January-June 2017, a number of Ukrainian tourists who visited Turkey increased by 33% compared to the same period in 2016. In the second half of the year, it will not decrease despite terrorist attacks and bad weather.  

Ukrinform learned this from the Association of the Hospitality Industry of Ukraine.

"During the first half of this year, 214,000 Ukrainians already visited Turkey, which is by 33% more than in 2016. In addition, on June 1, 2017, the agreement on visa-free travel of Ukrainian citizens to Turkey with internal passports in the form of an ID-card came into effect, which will promote further growth of the tourist flow in the second half of the year," the report reads.

According to the report, the threat of terrorist attacks and the deterioration of climatic conditions will not affect the growth of tourists from Ukraine in Turkey.

As reported, on July 30, a group of unknown people opened fire at a nightclub in the Turkish resort of Bodrum. There were no Ukrainians among the victims.
