M'sian tours to Turkiye unaffected by recent quakes, says MATTA

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian tours to Turkiye remain unaffected by the recent earthquakes that shook the nation's southern borders, says the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA).

MATTA committee member Datuk Hamzah Rahmat (pic) said that this was due to the majority of tours to Turkiye mainly focusing on the North-Centre regions of the country which remain unaffected by the earthquakes.

"Even before the earthquake, most of Turkiye's tourist attractions are situated in the central and northern parts of the country.

"As such, most Malaysian tours to the country are still proceeding smoothly without issue," he told reporters after a press conference at MATTA's headquarters in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday (Feb 23).

He added that only a small number of Malaysians have canceled their trips to Turkiye with many flights and tours to the country still going on as usual.
