Booking.com plans to resume activities in Turkey


Booking.com announced plans to resume operations in Turkey, after access to the website was suspended by Turkish authorities in March.

The travel agency's activities in Turkey were halted after a lawsuit citing unfair competition, filed by Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TÜRSAB), went to court March 29.

The fifth case hearing will be held Oct. 23, according to company officials.

The suspension negatively affected the business of numerous small hotels across Turkey, particularly in Anatolia, which relied on Booking.com over other tour operators and travel agencies.
