GUEST OF HONOR ARGENTINA
Argentina is to be this year’s guest of honor at the Eastern Mediterranean International Tourism and Travel Fair (EMITT), slated to take place in Istanbul January 23 to 27 with Turkish Airlines sponsorship. Promoting Argentina’s natural and cultural assets on the one hand, the fair aims to strengthen ties between Turkey and Argentina on the other. Argentine officials believe that the fair will also contribute to an increase in the number of Turkish tourists coming to their country. With its Buenos Aires flights, scheduled to get under way in December, Turkish Airlines too is offering passengers going to Argentina a comfortable, direct flight.
