Turkish Airlines Expands Istanbul ‘Stopover’ Service for Passengers departing from US Gateways

April 3, 2018 Aviation No Comments Email Email

Turkish Airlines, the global airline that flies to more countries than any other in the world, has added a ‘Stopover’ service for transfer passengers departing from all nine US gateways and flying to Africa, Eastern Europe and Balkans, South Europe, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Russia, Iran and Kazakhstan.

Passengers flying to these destinations who have more than 20 hours of connection time in Istanbul can receive complimentary accommodations in centrally located neighborhoods and the opportunity to explore the unique beauties of Istanbul during transit. Economy class passengers will receive a one night stay at a 4-star hotel in Sultanahmet, while those flying in business class will enjoy two nights at a 5-star hotel in Taksim. Travelers will receive accommodation vouchers from Turkish Airlines’ authorized staff after completing the flight booking process.

“Turkish Airlines’ ‘Stopover’ program aims to create an elevated experience for our passengers, as well as contributing to Turkey’s tourism activities by bringing in-transit passengers from Turkish Airlines into our fascinating hub city, Istanbul,” Ahmet Olmuştur, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Turkish Airlines shared. “As a global airline we know the importance of offering comforts both in-flight and on the ground in a destination, which is why we look forward to continuing to bring these enhanced services to our passengers.”

Turkish Airlines’ ‘Stopover’ program joins the airline’s recently introduced Istanbul Bosphorus Experience as another service to encourage passengers to explore Istanbul during a layover. The Istanbul Bosphorus Experience is available for business class passengers who have a transfer time of seven or more hours and would like to visit the city before continuing the trip to their final destination. The journey includes a luxurious boat tour of the blue waters of the Bosphorus and exploration of historical landmarks such as a dining experience at the magnificent Çırağan Palace Kempinski.
