TRAVEL GAZETTE – Turkey has suffered its biggest drop in monthly tourism in more than 17 years.

Visitor numbers fell by 28 per cent to 1.75m in April compared to the same month last year, the worst fall since records began, according to Turkey’s tourism ministry.

It was also ninth consecutive month of declines in an economy where 12 per cent of GDP is reliant on the tourism and travel-related industry. Over 36 million people visited Turkey in 2015.
