Welcome Letter

Esteemed Guests,
Welcome on board!
As the airline that flies to more countries than any other in the world, we continue to make what’s far near, and invite you to explore new places with unprecedented travel experiences. We’re pleased to welcome you on another journey.
Explore New Routes
Hot summer days herald the arrival of time for vacation after a busy year. You can explore new routes and add unique experiences to your memories with Turkish Airlines. We suggest you consider our recent additions to our flight network such as Krasnodar, Samarkand and Aqaba as well as Moroni/Comoros islands where we’ll operate flights only during the summer season.
If you wish to enjoy the beauty of summer in Anatolia, our country awaits you with peerless routes in all corners. You can discover sea and sun on the beaches of the Aegean and the Mediterranean; the green nature of the Black Sea, and the various unrivaled cuisines of Turkey. You can also have a different holiday plan with ancient cities, museums and archaeological sites in our country which is home to great riches in terms of cultural tourism.
For those who wish to follow the competition at the FIFA World Cup in Russia, we share our guests' excitement for the tournament by operating direct flights to 10 cities in the host country. In this issue of our magazine, you can read stories by authors with expertise in various fields and explore new places brought to life with the images of talented photographers.
We’re the Most Valuable Brand
As we operate flights to more countries in the world than any other airline, we also take every detail into consideration for you to have an entirely pleasant travel experience. Every day, we improve in the direction of the goals we set for ourselves as Turkish Airlines. We’ve been named the most valuable brand in our country. This title is the shared achievement of the Turkish Airlines family which has been welcoming you with Turkish hospitality and offering you a comfortable journey. I’d like to offer my thanks to my colleagues and you, our passengers, who’ve been flying with Turkish Airlines.
We’re proud and excited to have witnessed the first landing at Istanbul New Airport, which will become the world’s biggest airport built from the foundations up once opened on October 29, 2018, the 95th anniversary of our Republic, with the attendance of H.E. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. As Turkish Airlines, we cannot wait to move to our new home. We’d like you to know that all preparations are ceaselessly continuing to offer our esteemed guests a perfect service.
I hope that the general elections in June contribute to our country’s stable development, while I believe that we’ll have a stronger Turkey. I’d like to extend my wishes on Press Freedom Day, celebrated in Turkey on July 24, to the members of the press who are an essential part of democracy. I’d like to remember our martyrs with gratitude on the occasion of July 15 Democracy and National Solidarity Day when we demonstrated our strength to the world by remaining in unity and solidarity as a nation.
Have a pleasant flight!
Kind Regards,

Bilal Ekşi
Deputy Chairman and CEO
