Malaysia Airlines Charter flights to Istanbul?

Hi guys,

According to this article posted in July of this year, Malaysia Airlines is scheduled to operate charter flights to Istanbul in October of this year. Do we have an update on this?

During a recent visit by the Malaysian Prime Minister to Turkey, Istanbul's Sabiha Gokcen Airport, owned by Malaysian Airports, signed a deal with Malaysian Airlines for charter flights. The flights will also serve to gauge the viability of scheduled flights.

There is ample demand between Turkey and Malaysia.

These 3x weekly services will be operated for a Turkish tour operator.

MAS served Istanbul till 2015 when it dropped several Europe stations as part of its cost-cutting efforts.

Yes, Turkish Airlines also operate daily A333 (and B77W seasonally) flights to KUL. They offer reasonable one-stop fares to the rest of Europe too.
