In Turkey told what hotels are ready to receive tourists

The Turkish host company cited statistics on open hotels in the province of Antalya and Istanbul. It follows from this that after the resumption of flights to Russia guests of the country the first time will be available almost exclusively five-star hotels, according to ATOR.

In recent years, the majority of tourists coming to Turkey from Russia and Germany. But because of the pandemic, these countries have not yet sent travelers to overseas resorts. On the Turkish hotel market has created a paradoxical situation, experts say.

Many hotels of Antalya province have received "certificates of health" and implemented secure protocols for the reception of guests, but to open they are not in a hurry. So, in Belek employ about 40 percent of hotels in Kemer is around 35 percent, in Alanya which is 20%.

But the greatest of these is expensive five-star hotels. In the regions of Kemer and Belek was opened about 60 percent of them in Alanya – about 40 percent. "In the economy segment in the resorts are very few hotels have decided to resume work now. Of the 250 hotels located in the centre of Alanya (it is dominated by small objects of three and four stars for 40-70 rooms) are now less than ten," said one of the hoteliers.

In the centre of the resorts of Kemer, Beldibi and Goynuk well as the vast majority of budget hotels have decided not to open.

Thus, in the first stage, the expected resumption of flights to Turkey guests will be available hotels of level five stars, which will affect the average price of the offered packages.

The representatives of the Turkish host companies say that new five-star hotels ready to book rooms for tourists at the prices announced in January-February of 2019.

Dumping, however, now also do not expect. In the first stage, the majority of customers are Turkish "pyatizvezdnaya" this season will be tourists with a history of tours in may-July did not take place due Pandemonic limitations, so the underutilization of the Turkish "fives" don't wait.

The opening of the budget places of accommodation will depend on the format and timing of recovery of Charter flights, say hoteliers. If it happens only in the autumn, for many such objects will be easier not to open at all. That means "Turkey in economy format" this season may not be.
