|Almost half of Germans with an interest in traveling to the U.S. won’t do so now because they feel unwelcome or don’t want to endorse President Donald Trump.
About 46 percent of Germans who would like to visit the U.S. “in principle” have changed their views on that destination since Trump took office and won’t travel there as a result, according to a survey by GfK SE published in travel-industry magazine fvw.
The findings don’t bode well for Europe’s travel industry, as tour operators including TUI AG and Thomas Cook Group Plc are already dealing with the fallout of reduced travel to the Middle East amid concerns about security. Travel operators have been benefiting from a boom in long-haul travel, and the U.S. had become especially popular among Germans, who make up the biggest customer group for both TUI and Thomas Cook.
Transatlantic routes are among the most profitable for Deutsche Lufthansa AG, and Air Berlin Plc expanded its long-haul fleet as it increases its flight program to North America. Millions of sun-seekers avoiding destinations in the eastern Mediterranean and northern Africa have been turning to Spain, Portugal and Greece.
Among the Germans polled by GfK, 36 percent said they’d continue to travel to the U.S., as they differentiate between politics and Americans’ warm-heartedness. About 17 percent stated that national politics had no impact on their travel plans. GfK polled 1,004 people in the Germany between Feb. 3 and Feb 10.|

8 mln foreign tourists ‘expected to visit Antalya in 2017’
Around 7.5 to 8 million foreign tourists are expected to visit the Mediterranean province of Antalya over this year, following a daunting year for Turkey, a leading tourism player has said.
The number of foreigners visiting Turkey, mainly Istanbul and Antalya, declined to 25.3 million in 2016, a 30 percent drop compared to 2015, after a series of bomb attacks, a diplomatic crisis with Russia, and the failed July 15, 2016 coup attempt.
Professional Hoteliers Association (POYD) President Hakan Duran said the Russian market has started presenting attraction to Turkey again, as early bookings from them were growing in high numbers.
“We expect around 7.5 to 8 million foreign tourists to visit Antalya this year, which will represent a 30 percent increase compared to 2016,” he said, as quoted by state-run Anadolu Agency.
Half of Russia’s holidaymakers have chosen Turkey as their top travel destination in 2017, a recent report released by the Association of Tour Operators in Russia (ATOR) stated, citing estimates from the country’s tour operators and agencies.
“We have expected around 2 to 2.5 million Russian tourists to visit Antalya this year. If an average of 2.5 million Russians visited Antalya this year, we can close 2017 with around 7.5 to 8 million foreign arrivals, even in the scenario of some 1 million losses from the European market,” said Duran.
He added that there was a strong recovery in the U.K. market, as many Brits wanted to visit Antalya, however the same trend could not be seen for many other European markets, including Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Duran also noted that around 650,000 to 700,000 Israeli tourists were expected to visit Antalya this year.
|Hi Kumala,it won't edit on here for some reason,but the story easy to find|

|7th paragraph, could be good for Thomas Cook
|Interesting read neilThnxK|

|Nice movement over previous days up to circa 93 then down ti circa 84 back to 89 and looking to beat previous recent high...FAB....Aimho.....:)K|
|let me guess either MMs tree shaking to lose a few weak holders or Franky being deliberately cautious to let his mates in
or more likely a bit of profit taking after a damn good run from 80p upwards in the last two months|
|Chart looking good again...just goes to show, what was last week's fall about?!!|
|Zak Mire is a curse.|
|Strong set of results Thursday, the market overreacted....Peter Fankhauser is right to be cautious, I'd more worried if he was not! Exactly the same happened in January when Credit Suisse went from outperform to neutral...the market overreacted to the downside, however the share price was quick to recover, should the same happen again in the coming weeks then we shall be testing 100p.
Q3 and Q4 is what matters, from what Peter said Thursday we're expecting this Summer to surpass previous years.
More and more people are looking for half/full board holidays, especially those on a budget.|
|Interesting... lets hope the uptrend continues. Was not good hovering around in the 50,s bracket.....K|
|Despite cautious outlook, Zak Mir tips Thomas Cook to soar towards £1
09:20 10 Feb 2017
Despite the cautious outlook from Thomas Cook Group PLC (LON:TCG) in yesterday’s first quarter results, Zak Mir reckons shares in the travel operator could still head towards the £1 zone in the coming weeks.
“The summer was really the low point for the stock breaking back above the 50-day moving average in August and it’s been guided by that line ever since,” Mir explains in the latest Proactive Investors Bulletin Board segment.
“[The stock is] in a rising trend channel from June with the top of the channel heading towards 100p and that’s the target on a technical basis while we hold above the floor of the channel towards the 80p level.”[...]|

|Well overdone bought a bucket full at 83.55p hope to make serious money when back to 87/88p and will be a seller as quantity is large to wait for the +90p.|
