The decision of the tour operator was made against the backdrop of sanctions against Russia. The decision will be active until May 31, and then it will be renewed monthly. The Turkish newspaper Turizmgazetesi published the text of the message.
“The purpose of this letter is to inform you that all Tantur operations in Turkey for TI Travel LLC, TI Baltics SIA, and Borublita Holdings Limited are suspended. The contract is suspended in accordance with article 9 of the contract signed between your hotel and Tantur” Cezmi Ozkan, financial manager of Tantur Travel AŞ.
European travel companies that organize the rest of their citizens demand that the hotel space be cleared of the presence of citizens of the aggressor country. Therefore, Turkish hotels will not only cancel the reservations of Russians but also evict tourists who have already settled in.
It is known that in many resort areas, the practice of rest without Russians has long been common. However, earlier, it was used because of Russian citizens' ignorance and bestial behavior.
