Turkish expansion

Ranked as one of the world's major airline companies with its impressive growth figures, and having the world's fourth largest flight network by serving 261 destinations in 108 countries, Turkish Airlines is to continue its momentum by adding three new destinations in March, from its Istanbul hub.
With existing services to 37 destinations already in Africa, it will add flights to Abuja (737-900), the capital city of Nigeria, as its 38th destination in the continent.  From 3 March, Abuja services will operate five times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
On 30 March Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, joins the network (A340).  Flights to Manila will operate three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
Finally, Taipei, the capital city of Taiwan, comes on line as another new destination, beginning this time from 31 March (A340).

Turkish Airlines has options on the Airbus A380 which it has never taken up.   www.turkishairlines.com
