This contingency plan for lengthy tarmac delays is applicable to flights operated by Turkish Airlines and has been adopted pursuant to the requirements of section 259.4 of the regulations of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).
For all flights, which depart from or arrive at U.S. airports, we will not allow the aircraft to remain on the tarmac for more than 4 hours without an opportunity for passengers to deplane unless the pilot-in-command (PIC) determines there are safety or security reasons that the aircraft cannot leave its position on the tarmac to deplane passengers or Air Traffic Control (ATC) advises the PIC that returning to the gate or another disembarkation point would significantly disrupt airport operations.
We will make reasonable efforts to provide convenient and comfortable service to all customers in the event that a flight is delayed.
In particular, in the event of a tarmac delay, we will,
1) Provide adequate food and potable water no later than two hours following gate departure or flight touch-down if the aircraft remains on the tarmac, unless the PIC determines that safety or security considerations preclude such service.
2) Ensure that lavatory facilities are operable and that adequate medical assistance is available if needed.
3) Notify passengers on the aircraft every 30 minutes regarding the status of the delay, including the reasons for the delay, if known.
4) Provide passengers on the aircraft notification every 30 minutes that they have the opportunity to deplane, if that opportunity exists.
We have committed sufficient resources to implement this plan and we have coordinated this plan with airport authorities (including terminal facility operators, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Transportation Security Administration) at all U.S. airports that we serve including regular civilian diversion airports that are defined by DOT to be a “non-hub” or larger airport.
We will make reasonable efforts to comply with this plan in the event of a diversion to any other U.S. airport.
Pursuant to Turkish Airlines’s Conditions of Carriage, for flights operated on our behalf by other carriers, the applicable contingency plan will be that of the operating carrier.
Turkish Airlines values all of its customers and is continually working to improve its services and to offer the safest and most comfortable trip to every customer.
The following Customer Service Plan provides a summary of the actions taken by Turkish Airlines to assist its customers.
This Customer Service Plan is applicable to services provided in the United States and in connection with scheduled flights to/from the United States by Turkish Airlines and has been adopted pursuant to U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations.
Offering the lowest fare available
For reservations made via Turkish Airlines’ U.S. website, U.S. phone reservation center, or U.S. airport ticketing counters, we will offer the lowest fares available through that booking channel, when you provide specific travel dates, flights, and class of service information. For reservations made via the phone reservation center or airport ticketing counters, we will also advise you if lower fares may be available through the website.Notifying passengers of known delays, cancellations, and diversions
For flights that depart in 7 days or less, we will provide timely information about known delays of 30 minutes or more, cancellations and diversions (“flight status information”),within 30 minutes of our becoming aware of it, by:
Delivering baggage on time
We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that all checked baggage is available as soon as possible after a passenger’s flight arrives at the gate. In the unlikely event your baggage does not arrive at your destination with you, we will initiate a search and make reasonable efforts to return the baggage to you within 24 hours. In the further unlikely event that your baggage cannot be located, we will refund any fees that you have paid for its transportation (including fees for extra or overweight baggage). In addition, we will pay compensation for lost or delayed baggage as required by applicable international agreements.
Allowing full refund within 24 hours after ticketing
Turkish Airlines (hereinafter to be referred to as “the Airline”) allows its customers to cancel their reservation and receive a full refund without a penalty within 24 hours of their purchase for flights going to or originating in the United States. This applies only for the tickets that are purchased from the Airline’s direct online channels (the website www.turkishairlines.com and the mobile application) and at least seven days before a flight’s scheduled departure date and time.
In cases where at least 24 hours have passed since the reservation or 7 days or less before the flight, the refund policy is subjected to only applicable fees per the fare rules. The refund will be issued to the original form of payment.
Providing prompt ticket refunds
If a passenger has purchased a ticket that is eligible for a refund via the website, phone reservation center, or airport ticketing counters and the passenger makes a timely request for a refund, we will provide prompt refunds as follows:
Please contact your travel agent for refund requests for tickets purchased via a travel agent.
Properly accommodating passengers with disabilities, and other passengers in need of assistance
We are committed to offering convenient and comfortable service to all of our passengers, including passengers who require special assistance.
For passengers with disabilities, we will comply with DOT regulations. We also offer certain services for children traveling alone, passengers who are pregnant or traveling with small children, and other passengers who may require special assistance. While passengers may ask for assistance at the airport, there are, however, certain service requests which require advance notice. Please note that even in cases where advance notice is not explicitly required, we recommend that passengers inform us in advance of any special assistance requests so we can best be prepared to serve you. Such notification will help us plan ahead for your safe and comfortable travel. Please call 1800-874-8875 for further details.
We will make reasonable efforts to meet the requirements of passengers who require special assistance and also to ensure that the requirements of any passengers who require special assistance are met during a lengthy tarmac delay.
Compliance with the Contingency Plan for Lengthy Tarmac Delays
In the event of a lengthy tarmac delay involving a flight departing from or arriving at any U.S. airport, we will make every reasonable effort to meet passengers’ essential needs as described in our Contingency Plan for Lengthy Tarmac Delays.
Treating passengers fairly and consistently in the case of oversales
Occasionally we may not be able to provide a passenger with a seat on a flight, even if he/she holds a ticket and has checked in on time. This is called an “oversale” and can occur for reasons such as safety restrictions on the maximum weight that an aircraft can carry; an unplanned change in the size of the aircraft operating the flight; or if there otherwise are more passengers who have checked in and are prepared to board than there are available seats. Passengers denied boarding or involuntarily downgraded due to an oversale on a flight departing the U.S. are in most cases entitled to transportation on an alternate flight to the final destination and/or compensation, as required by DOT regulations. We will consistently follow DOT requirements and our own policies in the event of an oversale, including by asking for volunteers before denying boarding or involuntarily downgrading any passenger, and by providing a written statement to each passenger denied boarding which describes his or her rights.
Please be advised to arrive at the airport two hours prior to scheduled departure for international flights.
Disclosing cancellation policies, frequent flyer rules and aircraft configuration information
The following information will be available via the website:
Upon request, our phone reservations center can also provide this information, or identify its location on the website.

Ensuring responsiveness to customer problems
We welcome the opportunity to address the concerns and opinions of our valued customers, while continually striving to improve our service.
Although we will make every effort to respond much sooner, at the very latest we will acknowledge, in writing, all written complaints within 30 days, and provide a substantive response within 60 days, in accordance with DOT regulations. We will also promptly respond to other comments and feedback. Information about how to contact us is available here or by e-mail to You can share your comments, feedback and suggestions via our online feedback form.
Providing services to minimize inconvenience resulting from delays and cancellations
In the event of flight delays, cancellations or misconnections, we will make reasonable efforts to assist passengers in rebooking travel to their destination. As described above in sections 2 and 10, we will promptly notify to passengers of known flight irregularities and itinerary changes. Additionally:
