Production subsidy

The government of Turkey on 01 January 2017 extended the airline subsidies it introduced in 2016 in order to boost the number of tourists visiting specific local tourism destinations.

These subsidies are applicable to both international and domestic flights, as well as both national and foreign airlines.

However, they are applicable to only a limited list of local tourism destinations. Furthermore, these subsidies amount to:

  1. USD 7.800 for charter flights carrying at least 150 tourists by aeroplanes which have a capacity of 200 passengers at least. 
  2. USD 6.000 for all remaining categories of flights (i.e. flights not falling under the category described under 1.)

Nevertheless, in addition to the prolongation, the government of Turkey also extended the scope of these subsidies by broadening the number of tourism destinations which these subsidies are applicable to.  Specifically, in 2017 these subsidies for the first time are applicable to flights carrying passengers in the airports of:

  • Trabzon
  • Ordu-Giresun
  • Samsun’s Çarşamba
  • Denizli Çardak
  • Isparta Süleyman Demirel

Previously, the denoted subsidies were only applicable to the flights carrying tourists in the destination of Antalya, Alanya, Dalaman, Bodrum and Izmir.
