turchia-ist3The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) condemns in the strongest terms the attack on Istanbul Ataturk Airport yesterday and extends its condolences to all those affected by it.David Scowsill, President and CEO, said “Again we find ourselves having to express condolences to victims of a horrendous act of terrorism. The Council stands behind the Turkish government in managing this devastating incident.The attack is a further blow to Turkey’s tourism sector, which in 2015 contributed 13% of GDP and generated 2 million jobs. While our research shows that tourism is extremely resilient in the face of terrorism, this latest incident will undoubtedly have far reaching impacts. The international community, both private and public sectors, must come together in support of Turkey to ensure that as a destination it can rebound and thrive in the future.”
The World Travel & Tourism Council is the global authority on the economic and social contribution of Travel & Tourism. It promotes sustainable growth for the sector, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and to generate prosperity. WTTC is the organiser of the annual Global Summit, which brings together over 1000 delegates to discuss the opportunities, challenges and issues facing the industry, while its Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognise the industry’s power to be a positive force in sustainability.
