Flight Disruptions

As the Turkish Airlines family, we want to bring you to your destination on time. Our first priority is to provide you with a safe, fast and enjoyable journey. However, the dates and times of flights may change, or flights may be cancelled due to operational reasons. As well, there may be extraordinary situations at the departure or arrival point. We work diligently to resolve such cases and strive to improve your travel experience.
