Emphasizing the brisk pace of early reservation sales from Germany and the UK, Kavaloğlu pointed out that reservations in Russia have been sluggish due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict, thereby elevating Europe as a preferred destination for Türkiye.

Kavaloğlu stated that this year's visitor target for Antalya exceeds 17 million, with expectations of reaching 4 million visitors from Germany alone. Additionally, he mentioned anticipating German tourist numbers surpassing those from Russia in Antalya this year.
