Must Read

Melbourne’s Crown’s Palladium witnessed a grand event on Friday night, hosted by Turkish Airlines, as they celebrated the highly anticipated announcement of direct flight routes between Istanbul and a yet-to-be-announced Australian airport (or airports).

The highlight of the evening was Professor Dr Ahmet Bolat, who passionately expressed his vision of uniting Australians with the airline that holds the distinction of flying to more countries than any other.

“Türkiye and Australia share a long-standing history of friendship. Our countries may be far apart, but our people are very close in heart,” said Dr Bolat.

He further revealed that Turkish Airlines had long been eyeing Australia, with the Sydney office celebrating its 35th anniversary. This is a testament to the airline’s desire to expand its vast flight network to include Australia. Dr Bolat expressed excitement about connecting the Australian people to the world through their award-winning service quality.

While the audience eagerly awaited specific details about the launch, there was some disappointment as the carrier had yet to secure government approval to announce the routes. However, Turkish Airlines remains hopeful and determined to commence direct flights between Istanbul and Australia before the end of the decade.

When questioned about the timeline for direct flights, Dr Bolat disclosed that A350s were nearing the completion of engine improvements, indicating that direct flights between Istanbul and Sydney or Melbourne could become a reality within five years. However, the airline’s ultimate goal is to operate daily flights from Sydney and Melbourne, with the first flights currently scheduled for December.

“I am delighted to say that our planning is near its end, and we will make an announcement in the upcoming months,” Dr Bolat said.As anticipation builds and the final preparations are made, Turkish Airlines is all set to bridge the gap between Türkiye and Australia, fostering cultural exchange and providing seamless travel experiences for passengers soon.
