Turkish Airlines flights
Turkish Airlines celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2008 and was rewarded by its entry into the prestigious STAR alliance. The Turkish Airlines route network stretches across the globe emanating from the capital city of Ankara and the commercial centre of Istanbul. Domestically all the major cities of Turkey are served with a total of 31 airports being visited by aircraft of the Turkish Airlines fleet.
Turkish Airlines have now confirmed orders with Boeing and Airbus for an additional 40 aircraft, including Boeing 777 and Airbus A330-300 aircraft. Turkish Airlines have also announced plans that they intend to add Australia to their network by 2011.
Turkish Airlines have great plans and are already looking at expanding their network with increased frequencies and added routes such as Vietnam and the Philippines.
If the Government of Turkey was run as efficiently and effectively as the national airline, the E.U. would be inviting the Turkey to join the club at the earliest opportunity rather than just discussing the possibility. Turkish Airlines not only dominates the domestic skies of its home country but is used effectively by many international travellers transiting through its Istanbul hubs to reach a far-flung destination for very reasonable price. If Turkish airlines comes up as the cheapest option on our price and availability display we urge you to consider it as a safe and comfortable alternative to other airlines which spend more on image marketing and less on getting their basic product and time keeping right.
