The one thing that baffles me the most about TKs huge expansion is the fact that they are able to also operate all of these new flights from Ataturk airport. I was under the impression that it was operating at its maximum capacity level since about 2 years.

Funny thing is that people go on and on about Gulf carriers but no-one ever mentions TK which is following the same path and strategy and is might successful.

Well that's mostly because the gulf carriers have significantly increased their presence in the aviation industry, at a much larger rate than Turkish. Still said, Turkish has grown much larger and is geographically positioned to do well as a transit carrier.

Turkish Airlines to launch Gatwick flights

London Gatwick is set to gain a new link with Istanbul in December, with the launch of Turkish Airlines’ daily service.

The Turkish national carrier will be the only airline to fly between Gatwick and Istanbul Ataturk Airport.

Easyjet currently operates flights from Gatwick to the Turkish capital, but it flies into Istanbul’s Sabiha Gokcen Airport.

Sabiha Gokcen is on the Asian side of Istanbul, 35 km from the city centre, while Ataturk is on the European side and is only 24 km from the city centre.

From December 20, flights will depart daily from Gatwick’s newly renovated North Terminal at 1355, arriving in Istanbul Ataturk at 1945, with the return leg leaving the Turkish capital at 1050 and landing back in the UK at 1250.

The service will be operated using an Airbus 321-200, which flies 195 passengers in a two-class layout (to see a seat plan, click here).

The carrier already flies several times a day between London Heathrow and Istanbul Ataturk.

With its new launch, Turkish Airlines will join a list of carriers and routes that have recently moved into Gatwick. The airport has recently attracted Air Asia X, Hong Kong Airlines and Vietnam airlines to base services there (see online news November 18).

What has happened in 2011?

Quote:
The first B737-900er's arrived with the new sky interior cabin concept and flight entertainment systems. They will be used on African flights and will replace the less comfortable 738's.

The Comfort Class has been introduced. You get a similar quality to Business for a similar price to economy class.







The introduction of the Comfort Class is part of the project to put Turkish Airlines among the limited 5 Star Airlines in the world. Other initiatives are

- Allow airborne cell phone use
- Live TV broadcast
- Internet in the air
- Brand new 777's
- Adding new Comfort Class
- New Lounge at Istanbul Atatürk Airport

Very interesting. I think Turkish would be a good partner for LOT. They would invest into the airline and compete on the European market under the LOT brand.

LOT has been mentioned several times in the recent years but this time it seems to be really serious. Turkish Airlines is generally preferring growth by increasing passenger numbers and not by acquiring other airlines but Turkish has been always interested in LOT. I would like to know the reason of high interest in LOT.

Those are the pictures of all 18.000 workers of Turkish Airlines. It is a brilliant idea!

I would say that among the 10 most populous European countries Poland definitely has the highest growth potential.
Despite its rapidly growing economy, very few Polish people fly yet and in recent years the Polish government has invested a lot of money into the expansion and modernization of its airports.

We got some rumours in Lithuania that TK is about to launch IST-VNO flights from the middle of summer. Any news from Turkey?

I'm affraid this is only for PR purposes, and the plane didn't take to the skies because the special livery is constructed from multiple stickers.

Am I correct, or is it flying ?

Any ideas on what Turkish's plan is with their South African route, as they have said before that they'll be offering nonstop service to CPT in due time, de-tagging from the current JNB flights. Currently flying daily IST-JNB-CPT...wouldn't that rather warrant a 3 weekly nonstop CPT flight, and continue operating daily to JNB (or maybe extend that to Durban (DUR) then)?
