By Tuba Sahin

ANKARA (AA) - Turkey's tourism revenue totaled $4 billion in the third quarter of this year, the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) announced Friday.

From July to September, quarterly tourism revenue fell 71.2% from $14 billion in the same period last year, due to coronavirus-related travel restrictions and pandemic concerns.

"While 71.6% of this income (excluding GSM roaming and marina service expenditures) was obtained from foreign visitors, 28.4% was obtained from citizens resident abroad," TurkStat said.

According to official figures, individual expenditures constituted nearly $3.1 billion of the total tourism income, while some $946.7 million of the revenues came from package tour expenditures.

In the three-month period, Turkey welcomed over 5.6 million visitors -- 79% foreign and 21% Turkish citizens living abroad -- a 74.1% drop on a yearly basis.
