Praise for Turkish record

In a week of anniversaries, Turkish Airlines has been congratulated for its record of service to passengers at Birmingham Airport since it began operating from the Midlands with five services a week to Istanbul in December 2008.

The carrier pursued a policy of increasing frequency every year and has now moved to a double-daily schedule of 14 flights a week.

Paul Kehoe, chief executive, Birmingham Airport, said: “I congratulate the Turkish Airlines team on doing a great job here in the region and increasing passenger numbers year-on-year, and for further committing to the airport and its catchment area.

“Turkish Airlines is an award-winning carrier and long-standing partner of ours which has gone from strength to strength serving hundreds of thousands of passengers from our region.

"The in-flight product is first class and extremely popular with customers, which is demonstrated by more and more people choosing to experience the service, reliability and affordability it offers.”

Selim Ozturk, general manager for Birmingham, Turkish Airlines, said: “The airport is a hugely-successful base for us and has enabled us to grow significantly over the past eight years.

“This double daily announcement gives passengers even more choice and with 289 onward destinations via Istanbul throughout the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, Birmingham Airport really is the gateway to the world for our passengers.”
