TURKISH AIRLINES TO SHOOT PROMO VIDEO ABOUT KYIV TOURISM ATTRACTIVENESS

Turkish Airlines is going to shoot a promo video about Kyiv for their new advertising campaign in order to promote Kyiv and increase tourist flows to Ukrainian capital.

“Turkish Airlines is the only one company that has launched such a project in Ukraine: shooting of promo videos about cities, where it has regular flights. Today, the flow of tourists from Turkey has doubled, but we consider it insufficient and want to increase it further. Indeed, for example, 15 million people live in Istanbul, but the flow of tourists from Turkey amounted to only about 60,000 for half a year. Tourism is one of our priority sectors, and these videos will help us in promoting our city,” Khonda said during a meeting with General Manager of Turkish Airlines in Kyiv Dincer Sayici.
Filming will take place at the Zoloti Vorota (Golden Gate), Andriyivsky Uzviz, Besarabska Square, Saint Sophia Cathedral, National Opera, Feofaniya Park, Pyrohiv Museum of Folk Architecture and Life of Ukraine and other famous locations.
As reported, the Turkish air operator brought services to over 800,000 passengers on its flights to/from Ukraine that is 28% more than in 2017.
Turkish Airlines (Türk Hava Yolları, THY) was established in 1933 with a fleet of five aircraft. For today has an air fleet of 329 passenger and cargo aircraft.
