Turkish Airlines North Cyprus Roadshows
10th August 2018 - 4:10pm
As part of the North Cyprus roadshow, Kadir Doruhan (North Cyprus Tourism Centre), Joanna Marsh (Wave Media) and Turkish Airlines wined and dined members of the Irish travel trade and travel media at the luxurious surroundings of the 5-star Marker Hotel in Dublin's Docklands.
Joanna Marsh gave an insightful presentation highlighting the unspoilt landscape, vibrant and colourful history and the vast selection of 5-star hotels as well as small and chic boutique hotels located in the region. With more and more tourists looking for something a little bit different to the usual tourist spots, Northern Cyprus ticks all the right boxes.
326 days of sunshine, clear, clean, unspoilt beaches, excellent value for money; and away from the crowds and mass tourism. Joanna informed us that avid fans of Southern Cyprus dating back to the early days of the tourism boom have fallen in love with Northern Cyprus as it epitomises the characteristics that gave Southern Cyprus its charm before mass tourism. North Cyprus is about local food, culture and markets. It is a million miles away from the usual fast food and clothes franchises that have become all too familiar. Kadir Doruhan (North Cyprus Tourism Centre) voiced how the tourist board are very keen to attract the Irish tourists to the island stating that his office is ready and waiting to assist any agencies looking for support to highlight the destination to their client base.
The team from Turkish Airlines reminded members of the trade of the frequent daily flights to Ercan Airport. Of course, flying from Dublin we get to connect through the very impressive hub in Istanbul with double daily flights (potentially triple daily so watch this space). Speaking of the hub, Alper Sean from Turkish Airlines gave us a brief update regarding the new airport which is on track and scheduled to open 29 October.
