Birmingham gets daily Turkish Airlines

Turkish Airlines is making a further commitment to the Midlands by increasing flights between Birmingham and Istanbul from five flights a week to daily services from 25 March.

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, on the European side of the Bosphorus to connect onwards with the airline’s over 190 strong route network, benefitting 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.”

Turkish Airlines will operate two-class Airbus 320 and Boeing 737-800 on the route. www.turkishairlines.com www.bhx.co.uk
