invites travelers to once again seek the destinations they’ve dreamt about this past year. With 321 destinations to choose from, in 127 countries spanning five continents, the opportunities for exploration are endless.
Success in Uncertain Times
Despite the pandemic, Turkish Airlines was able to maintain a robust route network, closing 2020 as Europe’s busiest in flight numbers. Building on this success, the global carrier continues to provide connectivity and add new flights: most recently, the carrier launched service from its 10th U.S. Gateway, Newark Liberty International Airport. Turkish Airlines Premium Travel Experience Travelers can look forward to world-class services and amenities, award-winning cuisine and world-famous Turkish hospitality whenever they board a Turkish Airlines flight.
The airline is known for a rare dining service offered to Business Class passengers: Flying Chefs who prepare gourmet meals on board using only the highest quality and freshest ingredients, which have earned the airline many awards, including the title of the “World’s Best In-flight Catering Service” on numerous occasions.
New Amenity Kits Let You Travel In Style
This year, in collaboration with one of Turkey’s most prestigious artists, designer Devrim Erbil, Turkish Airlines launched an exclusive new line of travel kits. Provided to all Business Class passengers on five to eight-hour flights, they feature an eye mask, earplugs, non-slip socks, a dental care set with toothpaste, hand cream and lip moisturizer by New Zealand brand Antipodes, known for its premium all-natural ingredients. Offered in eight different artwork designs, each one features a different iconic Istanbul landmark.
Health & Safety at the Forefront
While added routes and onboard services resume, health and safety continues to be Turkish Airlines’ top priority, and has been since the pandemic began, when the airline introduced new in-flight health protocols: “Hygiene Kits” containing a face mask, disinfectant and antiseptic tissue, as well as “Hygiene Expert” cabin crews, appointed to flights to enforce all on-board hygiene and social distancing measures. Turkish Airlines was awarded the highest “Diamond” level status by APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association) Health Safety, powered by SimpliFlying, for the airline’s continued efforts in ensuring the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitation, which was deemed worthy of less than 10 airlines.
Istanbul Airport’s Innovative Travel Experience
The airline’s hub at Turkey’s new, state-of-the-art Istanbul Airport, which is the biggest built-from-scratch airport terminal in the world, also offers an incredibly smart and innovative travel experience. Next-level precautions, from smart screening helmets measuring passengers body temperatures to sanitizing luggage during the X-ray screening process and terminal cleaning via UV autonomous robotic cleaners, continue to keep travelers safe during their journeys. Travelers in search of a flight experience that offers world-class amenities and reassurance that health and safety are top of mind, as well as an experience that reminds them exactly why they love to travel in the first place can seize the opportunity to widen their worlds in style with Turkish Airlines.
