The number of Russian tourists visiting Turkey could rise to 5 million in 2017 given improving relations between the two countries, a rise in scheduled flights and options to pay in roubles, a tourism sector official said.

Murat Ersoy, the head of the Turkish Tourism Investors Association and chairman of Atlasglobal airline, also told a news conference Atlasglobal would expand its fleet to 32 planes this year from a current 26 aircraft.

Fewer than 1 million Russian tourists visited Turkey last year.
