ANTALYA - Israeli people coming to Turkey are in a difficult situation following the developments in Davos said Momo Uzsinay, chairman of Turkey Union in Israel, stating "the people in Antalya spit at us."
Recalling news reports of Israeli Elal Airways’s banning flights to Antalya that came out last week, Yüksel said the news was fictitious.
Elal Airways stopped Antalya flights in 2006, Yüksel said, adding the reason for this was competition, not the Davos incident.
"Onur Air, SunExpress, Sky Air and Sundor Airlines started flights between Tel Aviv and Antalya in 2006. Our airway companies carried passengers for 100 Turkish (liras) while ticket prices went up to 300 liras on Elal Airways," he said.
"Falling behind the competition, that is when Elal Airways stopped flights to Antalya," he added.
