The Turkish Hoteliers Federation has said that new bookings from abroad are slowly starting to come in, and they are targeting a 70% hotel occupancy rate this summer. Like many countries around the world Turkey hopes to boost its vital tourism sector this summer that has been hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak. Click here to read the full story.
Turkish Hoteliers Federation’s Vice President Mehmet İşler said that as the world normalises, and travel restrictions start to be lifted new bookings have begun to slowly come in.
Most new reservations are currently coming in from Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, and some Balkan countries. Some holidaymakers who booked trips to Turkey in April or May have transferred their bookings to July, August, or next year.
Cancellations of pre-season reservations made from abroad are low for July to October.
If Turkey’s easing of coronavirus restrictions this month goes smoothly, then July and August could still be a high season, and Turkish hotels will aim for a 70% overall occupancy – potentially even 100% in some hotels if they can ensure social distancing measures can be enforced.
