Tourism to Turkey and Egypt

Tourists returning to Egypt and Turkey, Tour operator Cook says

British tour operator Thomas Cook said it expected to hit its full-year operating targets after seeing early signs that tourists were returning to troubled markets Turkey and Egypt.

Thomas Cook, which unnerved investors in February when it issued a cautious outlook, said trading for the group was progressing in line with expectations. While it saw some margin pressure due to more competition, demand for summer holidays was strong.

“After a slow start to the season and a tough year in 2016, we’re seeing early signs that customers are beginning to go back to Turkey and Egypt,” it said.

Re: Tourists returning!!

Maybe from the UK, but I doubt if there will be many German or Dutch tourists around this year, having been called "Nazi remnants and fascists" by Erdogan!

Re: Tourists returning!!

Tourists returning to Egypt and Turkey, says Thomas Cook

I'm not really convinced by the comment 'some signs' though I do think we'll know what kind of season is ahead after 16 April.

I honestly don't see the figures picking up much.

Re: Tourists returning!!

Nobody thinks that "Thomas Cook would say that" because that's how they make their money?

Re: Tourists returning!!

There are very few tourists here in Side just now. I spoke to the guy who does the airport transfers this morning and he told me that the numbers are down by half from last year at this time. Probably just Thomas Cook touting for business I think.

Re: Tourists returning!!

Let's hope it's true as the ordinary Turk in the street including hard pressed traders in the tourism sector really deserve a boost

Likewise Egypt, Tunisia & others.

Did any of these Springs or attempted coups benefit the actual people, I wonder?

Re: Tourists returning!!

As an aside I just noticed that Turkey is still in the top 6 visited countries in the world-actually surprised that France is consistently number one

Let's be honest Spurs it's a definite no

Interestingly I was talking recently to an English commercial diver who worked for years in and has still many friends in Libya

He says for standard of living, security etc many many people long for the days of Ghadaffi
