Turkey to launch touristic maritime transportation route in Eastern Mediterranean

by Daily Sabah

Turkey is planning to attract tourists from Israel, Lebanon and Libya to its southern shores via a soon-to-be-opened maritime transportation route.

The Hatay Sea Bus (HADO), which will also serve as the sea border gate, is scheduled to start its voyages at the end of May. The first passengers will be transported from the region to the Gazimağusa (Famagusta) Port of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC). Later, the route will also serve as a sea bridge between the southern Turkish city of Hatay and several countries, including Israel, Libya and Lebanon.

Last week, a press tour was held at the HADO Project, which is also a key component of the “Expo 2021 Hatay” set to take place in the Arsuz district of Hatay starting on April 1.

According to information provided during the press tour, the foundation for HADO, which is expected to make Hatay a trade and tourism center, was laid in 2020.
