Onur Gul (Turkish Airlines) gives Travelbiz an update on 2017 and 2018 to date.


"Turkish Airlines had their most successful year in 2017 with load factors of 87% and we owe a big ‘thank you’ to our travel agent partners in Ireland and look forward to their continued support in 2018. We are seeing a considerable increase in bookings for Q1 2018 compared to Q1 2017. So far this year the booking trend has increased and we have had a successful start to 2018 with bookings up year-on-year. We are seeing a trend where passengers are travelling to IST, Antalya and N. Cyprus again for their vacations. We are also seeing a global increase in passenger numbers to the Far East, Asia, Africa and the Middle East with new routes opening quarterly.


We are adding 6 new destinations to our expending network with the completion of world’s largest airport in Istanbul, Sydney - Australia, Denpasar - Indonesia, Aqaba - Jordan, Krasnodar - Russia, Freetown - Sierra Leone and Yerevan - Armenia."
