Very interesting; only the second European carrier (after AF) to service Madagascar. This will hopefully do a lot for tourism in this beautiful and relatively unknown country.

And yet another two countries added to TK's list of countries served!

I think both will do very well for TK.

Interesting this has finally been realised - it was announced quite a while ago and then never heard anything.
So from the schedule it will be an IST-MRU-TNR-MRU-IST routing meaning if you want to fly to TNR from Europe, it will require 2 stops eg LHR-IST-MRU-TNR.
However, the price is much cheaper than AF. Return in January LHR-TNR on AF is £804 compared to £547 on TK.
Similarly TK to MRU is giving prices of £559 which is about £50-100 cheaper than the cheapest EK tickets.
Interesting that they price MRU higher than TNR.
How will MK, BA and AF cope with this on this route?

Very interesting news. Madagascar looks fascinating. Will they be able to pick up local traffic? I quite want to visit both countries on one trip.

Very interesting. I went to Madagascar last year and definitely wish TK would have been an option back then!
