The B2B workshop started first with Turkish Airlines promotional videos followed by presentations of three Baltic countries; presented by Külli Karing from Estonian Travel and Tourism Association, Egle Kudzmaniene from Lithuania Tourism Department, and Anna Blaua from Riga Tourism Department Bureau.

Speaking to ftnNEWS, Turkish Airlines General Manager in Vilnius said, "Turkish Airlines flies daily to Vilnius, Tallinn, and Riga. Today's workshop was very productive, according to the impressions received today, Turkish outgoing travel agents will increase their tour packages. Many plan to create packages visiting all three countries in a single tour.

We speak with Zydre Gaveliene who is the General Manager of Vilnius based estravel and also president of both National Tourism Business Association and Tourism Chamber of Lithuania. Mrs. Gaveliene sent her appreciation to Turkish Airlines connecting Baltic countries to the world via Istanbul and serving Turkish citizens to see the world.

Turkey promotion in Baltic Region needs update

Mrs. Gaveliene also told us about the wrong perception of Baltic people about Turkey; sending professional insight to Turkish Culture and Tourism Ministry about their promotions in the region. Turkey should promote more of its culture and history instead of its 3S (Sea-Sun-Sand) tourist product.

At her last words, Mrs. Gaveliene said that travel industry should stand against terrorism and show that we are not afraid of such acts.

We also asked Mrs. Gavelieve, what Turkish travelers will find in Lithuania. She shortly answers.
