Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, M İlker Aycı officially opened the conference, moderated by BBC Hard Talk’s Aaron Heslehurst. The programme featured leading figures in the travel industry including keynote speaker Celeste Headlee.

New Chapter

This year has seen Turkish Airlines enter a new chapter in its history as a global airline. The flag carrier moved to its new home at Istanbul Airport in April 2019 during a huge operation dubbed ‘The Great Move’. From the brand new Turkish Airlines hub, which will have an annual capacity of 200 million upon completion, its cutting-edge features and increased facilities will offer a huge potential for the airline’s operations.

With one of the youngest fleets in Europe, Turkish Airlines is on track to building a fleet of 400 by 2021 with the arrival of six 787-9 Dreamliners this year, allowing the airline to further expand its network. New destinations launched in 2019 include Sharjah, Marrakesh, Port Harcourt, Bali, Pointe-Noire, Luxor and Mexico City, with a Rovaniemi route to be launched in December.

Turkish Airlines Corporate Club is dedicated to serving the best of Turkish hospitality to corporate customers and is committed to offer a range of advantages through its loyalty programme. Appreciating that time is of the utmost importance, the Turkish Airlines Corporate Club provides maximum flexibility of ticket booking, use of Istanbul Airport’s exclusive lounges and pre-boarding advantages such as a generous baggage allowance.

Once onboard, valued members also enjoy excellent products and services. Business Class guests have exclusive use of flatbeds to stay refreshed, free wifi to stay connected and top class catering from their Flying Chefs.
