Turkish Airlines @ ZRH

Sun Aug 18, 2002 2:28 am

Since the beginning of June THY is operating a lot of additional flights to Zurich on weekends (Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Adana). This flights are listed as scheduled flights on the unique timetable. I thougt these were charter flights, and for how long these flights will be operated? Some help would be welcome. Thanks

It's all community traffic out of western Europe to several cities in Turkey and then back again, in the summer there is a peak in this kind of services, not only by THY, but here in the Netherlands Air Anatolia, Air Alfa, Bosphorus and more mysterious Turkish charter companies are operating a lot of flights out of AMS and even EIN, MST and ENS to serve the Turkish community mostly, even to destinations like Trabzon, Nevsehir and Kayseri.......Air Holland also operates this kind of flights on behalf of a Turkish Travel agency.......this peak will probably get get to an end somewhere in september.......

Keep your eyes open, they occasionally send 340's to European destinations other than LHR an d ORY.

Unrelated, but I wonder, why do THY fly to ORY instead of CDG?

maybe because there is a large Turkish community near ORY? Could be, also a main reason why some airlines choose LGW above LHR of JFK above EWR etcetra etcetera..........
