Appeal against ban on, rejected by Turkish court

A Turkish court has rejected online travel agent’s appeal against a ban on its activities, broadcaster NTV and the pro-government Yeni Safak newspaper reported on Friday.

An Istanbul court banned on March 29 for an undisclosed period of time, ruling that the company had violated competition law.

Court officials were not available to comment on Friday.


Turkey’s Association of Turkish Travel Agencies had previously made pay Turkey’s competition authority a fien of more than 2.5 million lira ($700,000) in 2015.

After the March ruling, the Information and Communication Technologies Authority banned access to the website which displayed the notice: “Unfortunately it isn’t possible to book properties in Turkey from your country right now.”
