Flying To Our Targets

Flying to more countries that any other airline in the world, Turkish Airlines has now raised this number to 96. The inaugural flight to the Cameroon capital, Yaoundé, and its second largest city, Douala, took place with the participation of the President of Religious Affairs, Prof. Dr. Mehmet Görmez, and the Chairman of the Board and of the Executive Committee of Turkish Airlines, Hamdi Topçu. Speaking at the opening ceremony, Topçu said, “I believe these flights are going to boost cooperation between our two countries.” Turkish Airlines has increased its flight destinations in Africa to 33 with the addition of the Yaoundé and Douala routes, which are slated to operate 4 days a week. Flights from Istanbul to Kilimanjaro and Mombasa got under way on December 5, flights to Buenos Aires on December 11, and flights to the Niger capital Niamey and the capital of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, on December 15. Following Benghazi, Misrata and Tripoli in Libya, Turkish Airlines inaugurated flights to a fourth point in the country, Sabha, on December 13. These were followed by the inauguration of flights from Istanbul to Iran’s third largest city, Isfahan, on December 19 and to the city of Kermanshah in western Iran on December 26.
