Turkish Airlines and UN Tourism to jointly promote sustainable tourism

Turkish Airlines and the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) are teaming up to boost sustainable tourism. The partnership was sealed with a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in the presence of the Ambassador of Turkey to Spain, Mrs. Nüket Küçükel Ezberci.

The aim of this collaboration is to enhance efforts in promoting sustainable tourism and civil aviation worldwide. Turkish Airlines, renowned for flying to more countries than any other airline, will join forces with UNWTO to pursue common goals.

Together, they will focus on promoting sustainable tourism practices, advancing aviation development, and encouraging cooperation between public and private sectors to improve air connectivity, especially in emerging destinations.

Drawing on their expertise, both parties will exchange knowledge and collaborate on case studies, including topics like sustainable aviation fuel.

Prof. Ahmet Bolat, Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership: “We are thrilled to embark on this journey with UNWTO to promote sustainable tourism and enhance global connectivity. This partnership reflects our dedication to sustainable tourism and our role as a global connector, fostering connections among people and cultures worldwide.”

Ion Vilcu, Director of Affiliate Members of UNWTO, remarked, “This MoU marks a natural partnership to further our commitment to sustainable and responsible tourism. Turkish Airlines is a trailblazer in promoting tourism and cultural exchange globally. Today is indeed a historic day, enabling us to promote civic engagement, cultural diversity, and local heritage.”

The MoU between Turkish Airlines and UNWTO underscores the significance of strategic partnerships in propelling the tourism and aviation sectors forward. Through close collaboration and consultation on mutual interests, both organizations aim to create a more interconnected, sustainable, and prosperous future for global tourism.
