The tourist deficit caused by Russia and Ukraine was closed with alternative countries.
Head of Kemer Promotion Foundation Volkan Yorulmaz said, “Alternative markets gained great importance in this war environment, in a crisis environment. We can say that Germany, the most important market of the Antalya dish, made the difference in one place, England in two. Scandinavian countries again showed great activity.”

On average, more than 60 thousand tourists come to the tourism capital every day. This density is reflected in the airport.

Target is 11 million tourists
Antalya hosted over 9 million tourists in 2021. This year, the target has been enlarged.
Saying that the number of 11 million will be exceeded this year with the continuation of this rapid increase, Yorulmaz underlined that they had a better season than last year.
