Turkish Airlines begins daily flights from Abu Dhabi to Istanbul

Turkish Airlines is stepping up its capacity between Istanbul and Abu Dhabi after a spike in demand.

It launched daily flights between the two cities after demand jumped by 17 per cent in the first half of this year.

The upwards trend is set to continue, as Emirates also has announced daily flights to Istanbul’s second airport, Sabiha Gökçen, increasing the capacity between the city and Dubai by 35 per cent.

Emirates also operates 11 weekly flights to Istanbul Ataturk Airport.

Previously, Turkish Airlines flew four times per week between the two destinations.

However, during the first half of this year, about 1.98 million business and leisure travellers flew on the route, reflecting a 17 per cent increase year on year, said Hasan Demir, Turkish Airlines’ general manager in Abu Dhabi.

“We are expecting demand to increase on the Abu Dhabi-Istanbul route. This is why we have increased the number of flights,” he said.

Rising bilateral trade and investment is driving the growth.
