SunExpress, a joint venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, has become a platinum sponsor of the 'Visit Izmir' mobile application, which will be implemented to introduce Izmir to all over the world with the cooperation of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality and Izmir Foundation.
Within the scope of the project, tourists visiting the city will be able to download the application to their smart devices and access all information about more than 11 attraction centers of Izmir in 2000 different categories, from gastronomy to important historical and cultural heritage, from accommodation alternatives to sightseeing routes.
Mayor of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Tunç Soyer: “This innovative work, which is an example of our understanding of another tourism possible, is the result of the vision partnership of all institutions in the city. We have taken an important step in the pandemic process, where tourism has been digitalized around the world and small-scale tourism has become widespread. İzmir became the first city to complete its digital tourism infrastructure.
Thanks to Visit İzmir, tourists will be able to visit different spots in 30 districts of İzmir for 12 months. It will grow the economy of the tourism sector and our tradesmen by easily accessing hundreds of lesser-known attractions of the city. This project is the first important step of the Izmir Tourism Promotion Strategy prepared by the Izmir Foundation. Within the scope of the project, our Foundation worked with the Izmir Development Agency for a year with the support of forty experts. SunExpress, which is a partner in the project, supported us throughout the joint process. On this occasion, I would like to thank SunExpress, other stakeholders of the project and all members of the Izmir Foundation. " said.
SunExpress CEO Max Kownatzki said: “As the backbone of Turkish tourism transportation, our aim is to show visitors from all over the world that İzmir is a destination where they can enjoy their holidays in safety with its rich historical and cultural heritage and unique nature. As the airline connecting Izmir to the most destinations with scheduled direct flights on both domestic and international lines, we will continue to increase our support for Turkey and Aegean tourism ”.
