TK New Routes?

Sun Dec 16, 2007 2:13 pm

Any news on the latest batch of new TK destinations?

Have heard rumours of Birmingham in the UK for a start.

Also, why do TK not serve Dammam, Saudi Arabia. They seem to serve virtually every other destination in the Gulf.

Regards

Mike

Quoting HUYfan (Thread starter):

They did serve DMM in the 80ies and stopped during the first G.Bush-Irak war.

Its matter of supply and demand, think there are no more Turkish construction companies to support direct flights, or they lost their rights to fly there

TK wanted for a long time to increase its KHI flights, but was not allowed, as a first step they were allowed to double their 2weekly I guess two years ago

There was talk in the Indian media this month about TK expressing interest in serving additional cities in India - specifically MAA or BLR.
Incredible India!

Turkish Airlines is interested in serving a lot of cities but has not enough planes to serve all these cities.
Especially Indian Cities are at the end of the pipeline as they have no more longhaul aircrafts to be delivered.

in Q1 2008 they will present their planing for the next five years, new orders, new routes. I m sure we will see lots of cities in India, China etc., as Asia will be their focus market
