Turkish Airlines to increase Istanbul to Birmingham Airport service to double daily from summer 2016‏

Turkish Airlines will increase its services between Birmingham and Istanbul from 12 flights a week
to double daily from the Monday 30 May 2016, offering more than 600 extra seats a week

The airline has a successful story to tell. Starting with five services to Istanbul in December 2008,
Turkish Airlines soon realised the strong demand in the region and increased the number of flights
in January 2012 to seven weekly departures.  Later that year it increased to ten departures per week
and in December 2014 the Airport welcomed news that the programme would grow to 12 weekly flights

Selim Ozturk, General Manager for Birmingham, Turkish Airlines, said, "Birmingham Airport is a
hugely successful base for us and we have grown significantly over the past eight years. This
double daily announcement gives passengers even more choice and with 283 onward destinations
via Istanbul throughout the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, Birmingham Airport really is the
gateway to the world with our award winning airline"

Paul Kehoe, Chief Executive, Birmingham Airport, added, "Turkish Airlines is a fantastic carrier
and partner to have here at Birmingham Airport. Starting eight years ago the service has gone
from strength to strength carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers. The Turkish Airlines
in-flight product is award winning and extremely popular – which is demonstrated by more and
more people choosing to experience the service, reliability and affordability it offers"

Flights will increase to 13 per week from 27 March and then to double daily from 30 May 2016
