TURKISH AIRLINES opened its new office in Dubai led by increasing demand from the Emirate, with 36 per cent growth in passenger traffic reported in the last two years.
This year, Turkish Airlines celebrates 30 years of flying to Dubai and now operates 14 weekly flights from the Emirate, connecting travellers to 221 cities globally, across 98 countries, the largest country network for an airline.
In line with increased passenger traffic, Turkish Airlines has increased seats on the Dubai route by 36 per cent in the last two years. The airline also recently announced flights to Houston, with attractive ticket prices from Dubai to the airline’s fifth destination in America.
Ayse Misirli Mirza, general manager for Turkish Airlines in Dubai, said: “The increase in passenger numbers from Dubai is testament to the growth in demand from both business and leisure travellers to Turkey from the UAE. We have witnessed significant increase in the uptake of our Business Class seats which reflects the increasing business and trade relations between the two countries.”
She added: “The travel industry in Dubai has been integral to our growth in the Emirate over the last 30 years and we are confident that with our award winning inflight service and competitive pricing to Turkey and beyond destinations, the upward growth will continue.”
