Thomas Cook says demand for Turkish holidays picks up

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

marmarisThe tour operator Thomas Cook says that Turkey is back on the tourist map for both UK and German visitors. Despite growing tensions between Turkish and German government, Thomas Cook CEO Peter Fankhauser told that Turkey remained attractive for German tourists.

Thomas Cook has said there is a continued recovery for bookings to Turkey and the resurgence in Turkey had not been affected by increased tensions with Germany.

Visitors shunned the country last year after a failed military coup, which led to the company offering free cancellations to customers with existing bookings.

Overall bookings for summer this year were up 11%, said the company. Greece was also back in favour, with bookings jumping by 22%.

Thomas Cook also plans to restart holidays in Tunisia now that Britain has softened its travel advice to the country following a militant attack in June 2015.
