Turkish Airlines raises Manchester capacity

Capacity from Manchester to Istanbul is being raised by 20% this summer by Turkish Airlines.

The carrier is to add four flights a week between May 25 and June 22 to give a total of three flights a day on the route.

A promotional fare of £124 return is being offered on selected departures.

The carrier’s Manchester general manager, Ersen Engin, said: “Turkish Airlines continues to be a key carrier for Manchester airport. In 2014 there was a capacity increase to 18% and is expected to grow to 20% in 2015.

“With this high demand and traffic to Istanbul and beyond, from June 22 onwards Turkish Airlines will have three daily flights from Manchester to Istanbul.

“This increase would further improve frequency and connectivity to Asia, Africa, Middle East Far East and eastern Europe.”

Some of the most popular destinations this season include Bangkok, Sharm El Sheikh, Hong Kong, Singapore, Antalya, Mumbai and Beijing.

“These are clearly destinations that are a break from tradition, exotic and locations that top it off with a sunny climate,” added Engin.
