Prensa Latina spoke during the 25th edition of the International Tourism and Travel Fair of the Eastern Mediterranean Emitt 2022 with the head of operations of the Turkish company, Eda Sirkecibaba, who said that the Caribbean island is currently its leading product.
In this regard, she explained that before the pandemic, the Cuban market was already very well accepted by the Turkish public, and in that sense, she said that the impasse experienced as a result of Covid-19 did not affect the resumption of interest on Cuban offers to foreign visitors.
Sirkecibaba commented that since the opening of Havana on November 15, 2021, more than 25 tourist groups have been organized by her agency, and five groups are expected to arrive in Cuba on a monthly basis.
She added that the main markets they work with, in addition to the Turks, are Germany, Australia, Azerbaijan and Iran.
On the other hand, the businesswoman explained that as South American countries open their doors to international tourism, her agency will be organizing travels to Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico, the latter will be linked with Cuba as combined destination from Cancun to Havana by charter flights.
Ejder Travel is betting on setting up an office in Havana in the near future, making use of the business portfolio presented by the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Investment, an opportunity that, according to Sirkecibaba, will further open Cuba’s doors to the European and Asian tourist markets.
