Turkish Airlines to fly daily from Birmingham Airport to Istanbul from March 2012

Turkish Airlines (TK) is making a further commitment to
the Midlands by increasing flights between Birmingham
Airport and Istanbul from five flights a week to a daily
service from Sunday 25 March 2012
The move will give business travellers better choice and
flexibility to meet in Istanbul, and will provide more
onward connectivity from Birmingham than ever before
Over the last year, more and more people have been using
Istanbul Ataturk Airport to connect onwards with Turkish
Airlines' over 190 strong route network, benefiting both
business and leisure travellers
Martyn Lloyd, Head of Air Service Development, from
Birmingham Airport, said, "Turkish Airlines began services
from Birmingham in 2008 and has offered a vital service for
Birmingham and the Midlands, whilst increasing passenger
numbers year by year"
"However, business travellers need both choice and flexibility
and we have worked in partnership with Turkish Airlines to
secure a daily service from the end of March. We're therefore
delighted with this development to give our business and
leisure community even more choice for long-haul
connectivity from Birmingham"
Mustafa Yildirim, General Manager for Turkish Airlines at
the Airport, said, "As the Best Airline in Europe, we're
committed to Birmingham Airport and the decision to
increase our operation demonstrates this. Turkish Airlines
can offer travellers excellent choice, service and punctuality
across Europe, the Indian Sub-continent, the Middle East,
the Far East and Africa, with a choice of 190 destinations
across our network. We look forward to welcoming new
passengers on this growing route and giving people from
the region even more choice. We will continue our growth
by keeping our service and quality standards"
Turkish Airlines will operate an Airbus 320 and Boeing
737-800, which are configured for two classes; Business
and Economy. Turkish Airlines operates the youngest
fleet in Europe, amongst scheduled airlines
To celebrate the launch of daily services, Turkish Airlines
will be offering the following return fares, including taxes:
