Antalya in Turkey is to be served with scheduled flights from Gatwick this summer.

Turkish Airlines is to run two flights a week to the Turquoise Coast destination from April 4.

The airline will operate the route on Thursdays and Saturdays with fares starting at £158 return.

Turkish Airlines general manager in London, Celal Baykal, said: “We’ve introduced this new route in direct response to the rise in passengers looking to travel to this destination.

“Whether a holiday maker or golf enthusiast, we are keen to help passengers widen their world.”

The airline allows passengers to fly with one full set of golf clubs free of charge.
