It is too early to speak about Turkey tourism safety - opinion


UFA, 1 July 2016. /Bashinform News Agency, Ksenia Kalinina/. It is too early to speak about safe staying of Ufa tourists and in general the Russians in Turkey. The general director of one of the well-known Ufa travel agencies Sergey Kolesnikov shared his opinion on the ban lifting on Turkey tourism with the Bashinform News Agency.

According to him, it is necessary to recover the entire infrastructure, namely representative offices in Turkey with hospitality guides and to explore issues related to transportation.

"There is a lot of work ahead. I think that we will not start selling a large number of tours to Turkey in the next 20-30 days", the expert said. "In addition, there are certain issues that we need to explain and show to our tourists. We need to tell travelers about a situation with safety. A real war with the Kurds is going on in the territory of Turkey. It is too early to speak about safe staying in this country so far, we will warn people about it. Life and health of our compatriots are above all, but not money".

As Bashinform News Agency reported, Vladimir Putin signed a corresponding Executive Order on lifting the ban on selling Russian tourists trips to Turkey.
