Travellers from Brisbane to Istanbul for April 2015 saw the biggest increase with almost four times as many people looking to visit compared to the same period in 2014

  • Across Australia, Sydneysiders recorded the highest number (37%) of travellers visiting Istanbul in April this year and also saw a 73% increase when compared to the same period in 2014
  • Melburnians recorded the second-highest number of travellers (23%) to Istanbul in April 2015
  • The number of travellers from Perth looking to visit Istanbul in April 2015 more than doubled from the same period last year

Alana Saphin-Polchleb, Oceania Head of Marketing at Skyscanner commented on the trend: “Skyscanner’s data highlights the significant increase in proud Australians making the trip to Gallipoli.
