Turkey's aviation stocks fell after coordinated terror attacks at one of Europe's busiest airports threatened to deal another blow to the nation's struggling tourism industry. Turkish Airlines and airport operator TAV Havalimanlari Holding AS were the biggest decliners by index points on the Borsa Istanbul 100 Index after three suicide bombers killed at least 41 people and wounded more than 200 at Ataturk Airport, Turkey's main international hub. Turkey's aviation industry relies heavily on Istanbul, where a new airport is scheduled to open in 2018 to replace the one attacked Tuesday.A 92 percent slump in Russian holidaymakers was the biggest contributor to a record 35 percent decline in the number of tourists visiting Turkey in May.
