Turkish Airlines’ AnadoluJet brand will launch its first international flights next month, which will include Dubai in the UAE.

International flights will launch from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport and Ankara Esenboğa Airport in Turkey.

The airline’s expanded flight network will include 10 weekly flights to Dubai at low fares.

Operating flights with Turkish Airlines cabin and cockpit crew, AnadoluJet will introduce international routes covering 27 destinations in 17 countries, taking its total 70 destinations in 20 countries.

With its fleet size also set to reach 57 aircraft, the brand will aim to continue to grow abroad while offering affordability.

Senior VP of regional flights at Turkish Airlines and head of AnadoluJet, Said Samil Karakas, said: “This expansion will allow us to offer our warm and welcoming Turkish hospitality to many more passengers while providing them with comfortable travel options at affordable prices.”

Karakas added: “Operating at the Anatolian side of Istanbul, and offering an alternative to Turkish Airlines’ flights operated at its hub at Istanbul Airport which is located at the European side of the city, AnadoluJet is set to become a meeting point of worldwide passengers with its new international expansion.

“I believe that after connecting Anatolia from one corner to another, AnadoluJet will successfully link cities of the world with its advantageous flight options.”
