Direct flights from German Frankfurt to Turkish Elazig start

Direct flights from German city of Frankfurt to Turkish eastern province of Elazig began on Monday.

The flights, organized by Oger Turk Tour officials, began with the arrival of a "Boeing 737-800" passenger jet, one that is owned by XL Airways.

The passenger jet arrived at Elazig with 137 passengers on board.

In a special ceremony held at the Elazig International Airport, the Governor of Elazig Muammer Erol said that the new direct flights will facilitate more frequent flights between Turkey and Germany and will make it possible for tourists to stay in Elazig for longer periods of time.

Surely, the direct flights between Frankfurt and Elazig will contribute to Turkish citizens' ties with the homeland (Turkey), Erol stressed.

Director General of Oger Turk Tour in Turkey, Adil Serim, said that "we have done what we could do. The rest is up to the residents of Elazig. The tourism of the region must be further promoted so that flights do not get interrupted. This is our desire".

According to Serim, Oger Turk Tour company will begin direct flights to Elazig from Stuttgart on May 31, from Berlin and Hannover on June 15 and from Cologne on June 16.

"These flights carry crucial importance for the vision and mission of the region. God willing, the flights will make contributions to the region," Serim also said.
