Turkish Airlines To Start MIA

Wed May 06, 2015 9:49 am

I've never heard of a carrier "expressing formal intent" to start a route. Usually a filing with the appropriate government agencies brings a carriers attempts to light. I know carriers make route announcements, is this just a different way of saying the same thing,? What are the required steps a foreign carrier should take when they want to start another US route, when they are an already known carrier to US airports? I'm genuinely interested, I'm sure I don't know it all, HA!

Either way, congrats to TK & MIA which seems to be garnering a never ending list of customers for their fine facility.

This has nothing to do with US approvals. Turkish companies that are public (i.e. with shares floating in the stock market) have to disclose important events, and in the case of airlines this also includes route announcements. TK usually has 3 steps in route starts:

1) Declare intent to serve a city in its publications or interviews by upper management
2) Announce the formal intent to stock exchange via a filing
3) Announce the route itself with starting date, A/C and schedule

MIA had already been mentioned earlier in interviews etc, but this is the first time 2nd step was completed. Now we can wait for the actual route announcement, hopefully soon.

-English version of the stock exchange filing:
"The Incorporation has decided to start operating scheduled flights, based on fleet availability, to Makhachkala of Russia and Miami of USA."

-77W with Comfort daily:
http://airlineroute.net/2015/05/06/tk-w15update1/

-And also the news of daily JNB flight to be extended to Maputo.


Congrats to Turkish Airlines and Miami !!!!!  
I guess we will wait and see if this is indeed Daily and with a 77W with Comfort. We know that Comfort class is on its way out. TK has 12 77Ws with 28J 63 Comfort class 246Y seats and the recent 8 77Ws with 49J 300Y seating. Also this coincides with TK receiving 2 more non Comfort 77Ws arriving in September.

Still, nice to hear this long awaited news. I can see many Turks again making the pilgrimage to cheaper real estate and cruise ships.

Only 3 of the 7 weekly flights will extend to Maputo. This is from 28 Oct. So the possibility still open to extend the other 4 weekly to DUR?

This would now make that suddenly CPT have more TK capacity than JNB, this is also the date when the current IST-JNB-CPT is being split into 2 seperate daily flights...unless CPT also gets tags...or stops along the way somewhere else (WDH, LAD)?

How does other European arrival times compared to the TK's 7:30pm?
I wonder if any airline takes into consideration the most cruise ship departures in the pm? People arriving from Europe and directly going to their ships. Or is the cruise market from overseas is too small to play a part?
Thanks.

The international cruise market is small compared to Americans who make up something like 85% of all cruise passengers world wide. That being said it is certainly out there. The thing is anyone flying in from Europe to make a cruise should certainly be flying in the day before. Most ships depart around 4-6pm, while there European arrivals at 1-3pm a slight delay, wait in customs and that ship goes out without you.

Not surprising at all, even though so many others who are very well informed and knowledgeable about Turkish insisted this was not going to happen anytime soon because of the "bad taste" Turkish had from flying to Miami 15 years ago.

Well that is true, as a public company in Turkey it absolutely needs to announce an intention to service a new route before the announcement. But here Turkish published Miami on the list of planned destinations hours before the announcement.

After looking back at it I did miss state the stats. 85% of the world's cruise traffic come from American cruise lines. However, only 51% of the world's cruise traffic come from the United States. Still over 50% from one country alone. I am confident the numbers on ships leaving Miami and Ft. Lauderdale are very close to the percentage I gave earlier.

http://www.cruising.org/vacation/new...th-passenger-numbers-and-product-o

But still, anyone coming in from Europe, the Middle East or Asia for a cruise out of one of Miami's two ports better come in the day before or they risk a shorter and more expensive cruise.

Cruising is definitely a US thing, I don't argue that, but most cruise lines are having to build bigger ships, come up with more exotic foreign itineraries & always try to outdo the competitors in their class of cruising.

Given the shear opulence of these vessels they are also attracting a growing number of European, Chinese & Australian passengers. I bet a decade from now that figure will come down even further.

It cannot because IST-MIA is a 13 hour nonstop flight hence not possible to be operated with a full payload A332/A333. TK's longest A330 operated service is 12 hours 45 minutes i.e. NRT-IST nonstop as far as I know.

I would have preferred 4 weekly B77Ws to start off with rather than daily as its too risky from the on set without having a partner like AA @ MIA to provide feeder support !

A lot of convincing was made to make it daily. But TK officials had a meeting with MIA officials as well as the Turkish Consul. They all made good amount of research. Remember, ATL was suppose to come first. Convincing was strong.

Official Press Release:

Quote:
(Miami, May 7, 2015) – Turkish Airlines, Turkey’s Four-Star rated flag carrier, has officially announced that it will launch Miami-Istanbul service on Sunday, October 25, with direct flights connecting the Gateway of the Americas with the historic gateway linking Europe and Asia. The new service will operate daily using the award-winning carrier’s Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and Istanbul will mark MIA’s 18th European destination when service begins.

“The leadership team at MIA is to be congratulated for landing yet another major international carrier and for continuing to propel our local economy forward,” said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “We welcome Turkish Airlines and its devoted customers to our community with open arms.”

One of the largest and fastest-growing carriers in the world, Turkish Airlines currently serves more than 260 destinations around the globe from its centrally located Istanbul hub, which offers easy access to Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. A member of the Star Alliance, Turkish Airlines’ quick growth has been accompanied by a steady stream of industrywide recognitions for outstanding customer service. Along with being rated a World Top 10 Airline at the Skytrax World Airline Awards each of the past four years, Turkish has also won consecutive “Best Airline in Europe” honors for the same four-year time period. The carrier has also earned accolades for its meal service product in Business Class and Economy Class, alike.

“In a year full of exciting developments at MIA, the introduction of new Miami-Istanbul service on Turkish Airlines is at the top of the list,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Emilio T. González. “It doesn’t get better than directly connecting two incredible gateway cities and three continents aboard a world-class carrier. MIA is proud to partner with Turkish Airlines and offer our valued customers access to Istanbul through our ever-expanding network of domestic and international destinations.”

Istanbul – boasting a population exceeding 14 million, more than 2,000 years of history, and a cross section of cultures and religions – draws millions of visitors each year to its historic center, much of which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The sixth-largest city in the world straddles the European and Asian continents, separated by the Bosporus strait. Istanbul’s historic center and Ataturk Airport are located on the larger European side of the city.

Miami-Istanbul flights will operate daily, with inbound flights scheduled to arrive in Miami at 8:30 p.m. and scheduled departures to Istanbul at 10:30 p.m. Turkish Airlines’ Boeing 777-300ER aircraft offers a three-class configuration with 28 Business Class seats, 63 Premium Economy seats, and 246 seats in Economy Class for a maximum capacity of 337 passengers.

Hmmm. That's odd. It was first reported than arrival into MIA was a 7:30 and departure at 9:30.

It may change for daylight savings time... EK and TK depart BOS an hour earlier in the winter. I would assume the same would be for MIA since the arrivals in IST are identical to those from other US destinations.

Already have gotten alerts for some great fares with TK to BCN and MXP under $800 round trip. I know its probably promotional but the more competition the better!

I noticed the same thing for numerous European destinations. They were all in the Oct-Nov time frame, which is definitely off-peak.
