Turkey as one of the most attractive tourism destinations around the world is trying to secure its safe place as Covid-19-safe travel hotspot. Turkey is doing its best to cope up with the negative effects of the pandemic on the tourism sector thanks to state supports, health initiatives and rapid vaccine rollouts.
The Radisson Hotel Group is fully committed to its investment plans in Turkey with three new hotels to be launched in 2021, Deputy Chairman for Africa and Turkey and Business Development Director Ramsay Rankoussi stated. “People are ready to travel in 2021 and they will turn to safe countries such as Turkey," he added.
The group will open two hotels in May, one in the western tourist town of Bodrum and another in Aliağa/İzmir. The third one will be opened at the end of the year in Erciyes Mountain - Kayseri, home to ski resorts.
“Turkey is a country of focus for our group and a precious market. We will launch three more hotels in Istanbul and Bursa as part of our 2022 plans," Rankoussi added.
The Ministry of Culture and Tourism unveiled a vaccination plan for tourism sector that will start before April 7, in order provide a safe and uninterrupted tourism season in 2021. A “Safe Tourism Certification" will be issued for the hotels and tourism facilities after vaccination.
Turkey is expected to record a 30 percent increase in tourism revenues this year.
