Turkish Airlines is increasing the number of flights between Birmingham and Istanbul from seven to ten flights a week!
Turkish Airlines is going from strength to strength at Birmingham Airport, increasing the number of flights to Istanbul from seven to ten flights a week, offering even more choice and greater connectivity than ever before.
To celebrate the expansion, Turkish Airlines has presented the Airport with a giant model aircraft which now hangs proudly from the ceiling of the Airport’s International Pier.
The extra flights on Monday, Thursday and Sunday offer even more opportunity for onward connections to the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, as well as providing greater flexibility for those wanting to travel from Birmingham to Istanbul.
Martyn Lloyd, Commercial Director at Birmingham Airport, said: “Over the last four years, we have seen more and more people flying with Turkish Airlines, so they can connect to over 200 onward destinations via Istanbul Ataturk Airport.
“This increase in the number flights per week is great news for our leisure and business passengers, who now have even more choice and flexibility for long-haul connectivity from Birmingham.”
Selim Ozturk, General Manager for Turkish Airlines at Birmingham, said: “We are extremely proud of what we have achieved at Birmingham Airport since we began operating flights from here back in 2008.
“The demand has been incredibly strong from the very beginning, which is why we have decided to increase the number of flights between Birmingham and Istanbul from seven to ten flights per week.
“To celebrate this landmark occasion, we are delighted to present the airport with an impressive model aircraft, which now hangs from their International Pier for passengers to admire before they fly out.”

[offtopic]Ray - did Flybe sponsor The Blues at one time? If so, perhaps they still do. I'm sure they were involved with one or two clubs as shirt sponsors anyway.[/offtopic]Turkish Airlines have signed a sponsorship deal with Aston Villa Football Club. Nice for the city but as a Birmingham fan I hope we won't be seeing a claret and blue livery anytime soon
I didn't know Yeovil were ever sponsored by flybe.kebabselector said:

Apparently Turkish Airlines will be expanding UK ops next year (around May).
For BHX, they are going 2xdaily with B737-800 on AM flight, B737-900 on PM flight.
Usual disclaimer of subject to change
So if its true, good news for BHX in summer 2014
It's not a true replacement in anyway shape or form. I've flown on both types the 900 was just like the 800 but with 4-5 extra rows of seats nothing much. When the 757 finally leaves our sky's airlines really will miss it the most....Aviador said:Isn't the 737-900 meant to be a replacement for the 757? How did it compare?
