Turkish Airlines continues to enhance its flight network, especially after it recently launched flights to Mexico City – the second biggest city of Latin America and the capital of Mexico – and to Cancún, one of the favourite holiday centres of Central America.

The flights to Mexico City and Cancún, the 18th and 19th destinations of Turkish Airlines in the Americas, are operated three days a week on Istanbul-Mexico City-Cancún route. The service started earlier last August. With these flights, Turkish Airlines has added Mexico, the biggest country of Central America, to its flight network, thus offering a ‘connectivity opportunity’ to a greater area from Istanbul Airport.

During the press conference held in Mexico City International Airport for the inaugural flights to Mexico City and Cancún, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and Executive Committee M İlker Aycı, said they continue to expand the borders of their flight network within the framework of the airline’s growth strategy.

We are happy to be able to connect these two important cities of the Americas to 125 countries around the world. From this day forth, our guests travelling to Mexico City and Cancún will be able to fly with comfort via Turkish Airlines. We believe our new flights will strengthen the ties between Turkey and Mexico in every way.’
