Local business people will during the months of November and December enjoy bargain flight and hotel rates when they visit Turkey.
Martial Mercy, acting managing director of Susa Tours, said Rwandans would be charged $2,500 in November and $2,000 in December for a full travel package, which includes a Turkish Airlines return ticket and full board at top hotels in Istanbul and Antalya.
“This is an affordable bargain for Rwandans. We have already signed agreements with some hotels and Turkish Airlines to offer the services,” Mercy said.
It costs about $3,765 for similar package to Turkey, according to the current market rates.
Turkish airlines charges $850 for a return ticket to Turkey. However, the price usually varies depending on the season.
“We are hopeful that many business people and other visitors will take this opportunity to do business at reduced rates,” said Burcin Isler, the Turkish Airlines Rwanda office general manager.
