E-learning Programme for Travel Agents in India.

Straddling the continents of Europe and Asia, Turkey's strategically important location and geographical landscape have put the country in the spotlight of global tourism. Its breathtaking natural beauty, historical and archaeological sites, evolving tourism products and steadily improving infrastructure have made Turkey one of most popular destinations in the world.

It comes as no surprise that the country witnessed 14.1% growth in foreign tourist arrivals in 2019 with more than 51 million visitors. When it comes to Indian tourist arrivals, Turkey recorded an encouraging growth of 57% with more than 230.000 Indian tourists. In addition to FITs, MICE and destination weddings are the two segments that hold immense potential for Turkey from India.

Its largest city Istanbul is a global heritage hub, and the natural strait of Bosphorus that flows solemnly holds the distinction of separating the city into two continents. Furthermore Cappadocia, Antalya, Bodrum and Izmir have already become well-known tourist destinations worldwide.

Taking everything into consideration, Turkish Tourism has devised an e-learning programme to showcase the distinct identity of the country. Through this learning exercise, agents will be assisted with information and tools to create engaging trips to Turkey.

But of course more than anything we would love to welcome you in Turkey. That’s why out of everybody who will complete this E-learning programme, fifteen lucky draw winners will stand a chance to win a FAM trip to Turkey (Terms & Conditions apply).

Happy Learning!
