Gatwick gains more Turkish

Turkish Airlines has expanded its services from Gatwick to Istanbul, with Turkey’s national carrier now offering flights to both of Istanbul’s airports. 

Turkish Airlines already operates a daily service between Gatwick and Atatürk airport – Istanbul’s major hub – which offers connections to the airline’s extensive global network, particularly in the Middle East and Asia.  A new route to Sabiha Gökçen on the Asian side of the Bosphorus will enable passengers to connect to a wider variety of domestic destinations in eastern Turkey and also offer Turkish travellers more choice of flights to London.  Initially three times per week, it goes daily from 1 June.

Guy Stephenson, Chief Commercial Officer, Gatwick, commented: “Turkey is an incredibly important market for both business and leisure travellers so we are delighted that Turkish Airlines will now offer more direct services from Gatwick.

Osman Battal, Director for Turkish Airlines at Gatwick, said: “The extra flights offer even more choice than ever thanks to our growing network from Istanbul, which now spans across 98 countries, providing 221 destinations worldwide for the region’s business and leisure traveller”. www.turkishairlines.com www.gatwickairport.com
