Turkish Airlines Commences Daily Flight To Lagos

Given the favourable business climate it has enjoyed in Nigeria, Turkish Airlines has resolved to raise its frequencies from three weekly flights to daily operations.

The managing director of the airline, Mr. Ali Aulut who disclosed this to newsmen in Lagos said “with the growth of Turkish Airlines in Nigeria, coupled with the encouraging patronage, we are upgrading our frequencies to daily flights in order to better serve our customers between Lagos and Istanbul”.

According to him, “we are increasing our frequencies to daily flights because of our load factor has been encouraging and will enable us serve our customers better and more adequately by connecting them to their different destinations with ease”.

He mentioned that the airline would be deploying one of its brand new aircraft, the Boeing 737 – 900 – ER on the Istanbul – Lagos route that would replace current A330.

“We are changing the aircraft to B737 – 900 ER from current A330. this is to make our esteemed passengers more comfortable as this new machine has more leg – room. This type of aircraft is going to be introduced to other African routes as well”.

Turkish Airlines recently announced that it had pleaded order for 20 Boeing 737 -800s and 15 Boeing 737 – 900 ERs, all featuring the innovative Sky Interior, bringing a new level of design and comfort to passengers. The interiors feature light – emitting diodes that create soft blue overhead illumination as well as new cove lighting. The sidewall panels have been sculpted in a new curving pattern that draws the traveller’s eye to the window and outside.

In addition, new, larger overhead bins provide more storage space and are pivoted in a way that makes us easier, while actually increasing cabin space.

Four of the aircraft (2 Boeing 737 – 800, and 2 Boeing 737 – 900ER) will be delivered and added to the airline’s fleet in November and December 2011.
