Onur Air only offered one type of class in their cabins. Although everyone is provided with the same great level of service and same comfortable seats, there's scope for personalisation of your flight. This is through the different fare types which can be purchased, called ‘packages’.

On the Standard Package, passengers were given an extra 5kg of checked luggage for domestic flights, and 10kg for international flights. In addition, passengers could choose their seats and receive a cold meal on board.
This premium package provided passengers with even more baggage; 5kg extra, in addition, the plain package, as well as an item from the cold meal menu on board. Passengers also had a wider selection of seats to choose from and could make changes to the ticket up to two hours before the flight time without a fee from the airline.
Seats in the Economy Class cabin were comfortable, with 76 cm (29.9") of seat pitch. Economy Class seats are set out in a 3 x 3 configuration.
There was no in-flight entertainment system onboard. The airline did offer each passenger the airline in-flight magazines, which had a new issue every month

The number of points that a passenger earned for each flight would depend on the route and the fare purchased.
