There is also a demand for 30 thousand seats from Öger Tuors. We know about the demands from the Dutch market”, he said.
Ekrem Er, the President of Mahmutlar Hoteliers Association said that many travel agencies would bring customers during wintertime. “The hotels, located in the eastern regions of Alanya, make contracts for lower prices, also, their tourism season is shorter. Now we are negotiating with Dutch and German tour agencies. If we start working with them, Alanya’s east side hotels will benefit from it most of all,” he said.
