The enhanced infrastructure and customer service investments cement the company's presence and commitment to the travel industry in Turkey, where the company has been operating for 20 years.
The new investments will deliver a range of benefits for customers in Turkey including state-of-the-art technology and innovative products, backed by a dedicated local support team and consultants to help fast-track growth for business and leisure travel, online travel agencies (OTAs), travel management companies (TMCs) and consolidators.

This positive investment underlines our continued commitment to supporting the regional travel industry with our latest products and solutions, combined with our in-depth knowledge of the sector and our global reach."
