Travelbiz with Sun Express in Dublin
Our great friend and trade partner Jens Bachmann (Manager AVIAREPS Ireland) representing SunExpress along with Michael Schober (Senior Manager Direct Sales Sun Express) and Volker Richter (Area Manager Foreign Markets Sun Express) invited Travelbiz and fellow trade partners to their summer barbecue in the Radisson Blu in Dublin.
Sun Express is 30 years old and is a joint venture between Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines. They operate leisure flights to 54 international destinations plus 19 domestic routes in Turkey. They have a fleet of 60 modern 737-800s with 189 all economy seats. They operate a direct service on Wednesdays and Saturdays from Dublin to Izmir until November.
There are three fare levels, all including free baggage. Even the lowest fare level has a 30kg allowance – plenty of room for shopping there! Apart from reminding us that Izmir has 300 days of sunshine per year, Michael also told us that there are 18 world class golf courses in Antalya and Sun Express have onward connections from Izmir with very competitive rates for groups. Our host and organiser of the night’s event was Jens Bachman (Aviareps) who represent Sun Express in Ireland. Jens is your man for any queries or information on Sun Express. After their most informative presentation we enjoyed a delicious barbeque in the salubrious surroundings of the Sky Suite in the Radisson Blu Royal, Golden Lane. The evening ended with a draw for tickets on the Sun Express flight from Dublin to Izmir and the lucky, and delighted, winners were Claudine (Trailfinders) and Galina (Cassidy Travel).
