The national flag carrier has added the crimson city of Marrakech to its ever-expanding flight network.

Successfully completing its ‘Great Move’ process, transferring all of its passenger operations to its new hub at Istanbul Airport, Turkish Airlines now adds the tourist city of Marrakech to its flight network. As the flag carrier’s first inaugural flight from its new home, Marrakech is now Turkish Airlines’ second destination in Morocco, and  its 308th destination globally!

Istanbul – Marrakech – Istanbul direct flights will commence five days a week as Turkish Airlines reinforces its ‘flying to more international destinations’ than any other airline.

The inaugural flight from Istanbul Airport landed in Marrakech Menara Airport and was welcomed by a customary water cannon salute.

Speaking on the inaugural flight, Turkish Airlines Chief Marketing Officer Ahmet Olmuştur said that a new era has begun in global aviation, especially now that they have transferred at Istanbul Airport.

Our new operation centre offers an important opportunity for us to develop our globally unparalleled flight network performance even further. We are working on new strategies to capitalise on this opportunity. Marrakech will always hold a special place for us as it is the first destination we added from our new home. We are happy to carry our passengers to this crimson city with our privileged travel experience.’

Crimson City

Known as the ‘Crimson City’ due to the colour of its soil, Marrakech offers tourists and travellers the opportunity to experience the entire allure of North Africa in a single location. Bringing historical buildings, famous mosques and colourful flower gardens together at the foothills of Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is well on its way to become a favourite tourism centre of the world. It was the first capital of Morocco, and its name means ‘Land of God’ in Berber language. The streets of Marrakech teem with historical heritage that also showcase various cultures.

Passengers travelling to Marrakech with Turkish Airlines will be able to visit various significant cultural locations while also experiencing different activities such as nature and wildlife tours.
