Turkey’s civil aviation authority has allowed Anadolujet, Turkish Airlines subsidiary, to offer direct flights between Ankara and Brussels, London and Amsterdam.
The General Directorate of Civil Aviation of Turkey said in a statement on its website that flight frequency will be 3 times a week in summer season and twice a week in winter, with the first flight planned in three months.
The aviation authority had earlier given permission to two airlines for new routes - Borajet Airlines for Ankara-Munich, and Pegasus Airlines for Ankara-Baku and Ankara-Jordan.
Early May, Ankara Chamber of Industry head Nurettin Ozdebir told Anadolu Agency that Turkish Airlines had promised to add 27 flights per week from Ankara to seven new foreign destinations.
“Turkish Airlines is currently flying directly from Ankara to Moscow and Dusseldorf,” he said. “Beginning from Oct. 1 the airline will fly directly from Ankara to Frankfurt, Vienna, Baku, Brussels, London, Tehran and Amsterdam.”
Ozdebir also said Anadolu Jet would also add direct flights from Ankara to seven new foreign destinations in 2016, and another five in 2017.
Nearly 1 million people fly from Ankara to foreign destinations every year using Istanbul's two airports as a transit point.Güncelleme Tarihi: 24 Haziran 2015, 15:47
