TAV Milas Bodrum Chief Operations Officer İclal Kayaoğlu stated: “TAV Airports took over the operation of domestic and international terminals of Milas-Bodrum Airport, one of the major tourism destinations in Turkey, in 2014 and 2015, respectively. As soon as TAV started to operate Milas-Bodrum Airport, we have begun our promotion campaigns to increase particularly direct international flights to Bodrum in collaboration with local authorities and NGOs. The expansion of launch of Bodrum's flight network with the launch of Berlin and Hamburg flights by Germania is a concrete result of our endeavors. We are confident that we would make a significant contribution to the regional tourism by continuing to expand our flight network".
Germania Turkey Sales Manager Ismail Polat expressed: “Following the recent developments in Turkey, many steps have been taken to turn a possible crisis into business opportunity. In line with the strategy of providing services at affordable prices by creating high customer satisfaction to increase the number of local and international passengers, Germania's belief in Turkish tourism has been strengthened; so we decided to launch flights in new destinations. We have commenced flights to Gazipaşa-Alanya and Milas-Bodrum airports, the most popular destinations in the Aegean and Mediterranean regions, as of May. In 2017, whilst the number of these flights will be increased, new flights to other destinations in Turkey will also be launched".
