Turkish leisure carrier Corendon Airlines is set to add new destinations to its flight network for this coming Summer and will also be increasing the frequency of its flights.

Daily flights from London to Turkey's Mediterranean hotspot Antalya will be conducted following an increase in demand from the British holiday makers. The UK to Turkey flight schedule is set to expand. UK flights from five Airports in Turkey will begin April 1st. Flights will also be operating from Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Newcastle to Antalya, Bodrum and Dalaman.      

Due to the easing of travel restrictions, more and more British tourists are wanting to travel. The easing of restrictions also means that tourists will be able to travel more comfortably.

Corendon Airlines Commerical Director Mine Aslan stated that “We focused on improving our infrastructure during the pause we experienced due to the COVID-19 pandemic and realized a great digital transformation. The U.K. is a market where digital channels are important and that we adapt to the dynamics of this market with the digital developments we carry out."

The Commercial Director went on to state that they were thrilled with how much interest they had received from the United Kingdom.

Aslan also stated that “Antalya stands out as the most preferred destination by British passengers, who show how much they miss Turkey with this high interest.” She went onto say that “We will also increase the number of our flight destinations by adding new cities from the U.K. in the coming period. We aim to expand our plans to include the winter season. 2022 will be a period when we take a leap forward in the U.K. market."

Sun Express, the joint venture between Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, is also expanding its UK flight network to Turkey this coming Summer. There will be flights from Manchester, Gatwick, Birmingham and Edinburgh along with its already existing Luton services.
