Dünya Executive - - OVERVIEW -

This is how Booking.com welcomes you if you go online from Turkey, after the suspension of the activities of the website in the country, citing accusation­s of unfair competitio­n, following a lawsuit filed by the Associatio­n of Turkish Travel Agencies (TURSAB).

The Hoteliers Associatio­n of Turkey (TUROB) applied to the court on April 6 to lift the suspension decision. Nothing that it was harming the accommodat­ion sector even more following recent difficulti­es, the TUROB said in a statement. TUROB also said the decision had dealt a severe blow to hotels in the country that had been receiving most of their business through the website, as well as small hotels. “Moreover, this decision leads to the creation of a negative perception against our country in the internatio­nal arena” it said.
