“We are very much looking forward to summer 2010 now that we have taken our relationship with Thomas Cook to a new level.”
Thomas Cook tour operations director Richard Calvert said: “Our partnership with LykiaWorld further strengthens Thomas Cook’s presence in increasingly popular Turkey.
“We’re delighted to be working with LykiaWorld on an exclusive basis and are confident that these superb hotels will continue to be a popular choice and achieve excellent scores in customer satisfaction.”
