Turkish Airlines joined with partners from North Cyprus to promote the region at the Radisson Blu, Golden Lane, Dublin.
Richard Greenaway, now of Cyprus Premier, well known to the Irish trade through his association with Malta, was on hand to present North Cyprus as an exceptional destination with great climate, great value and world-class hotels. Competitive rates are available in all hotels from 2-star to 5-star.
Cyprus Premier is actively looking for an Irish tour operator to partner them in promoting the destination.
Enjoying his move to Dublin in the past six months and getting to know members of the Irish trade – and also getting used to the Irish way of doing business, Hasan Mutlu, General Manager Ireland, Turkish Airlines, has been settling well into the Irish way of life.
Alper Sean Kanburoglu gave an update on Turkish Airlines: with over 300 aircraft in the fleet and 63.4 million passengers the airline continues to grow – winning awards for excellence on the way. This year THY will enjoy 5% growth and, with a new terminal at Istanbul next year and covering more than 300 destinations worldwide, future growth is assured.
Prizes from hotels, resorts and the airline were won by:
Anita Valente, Best in Italy: Giant model of Turkish Airlines aircraft.
Solange Vonsowksi, Budget Travel: Two tickets on Turkish Airlines
Anneka McNally, Cassidy Travel: Five nights at the Pia Beach Hotel + flights
