As the airline that flies to more countries than any other in the world, Turkish Airlines cemented its leadership in the field by adding Banjul, the capital of Gambia, and Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, to its flight network.
Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries than any other both in Africa and in the world, added Banjul, the capital of Gambia, and Lusaka, the capital of Zambia, to its flight network. Both cities stand out with their touristic potentials as well as political, cultural, and commercial reputation as capitals.
Located by the Atlantic Ocean in West Africa, Banjul attracts tourists with the Abuko Nature Reserve, where visitors can observe wildlife; Kunta Kinteh Island, which is now included on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List; and various textile products, accessories, and local dishes.
Lusaka, the capital and largest city in Zambia, is one of the fastest developing cities in Africa. The capital, where modern structures intertwine with authentic markets that feature local produce, is frequented by tourists both for Victoria Falls, one of the world’s biggest waterfalls and one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and for its close proximity to nature parks where African wildlife can be closely observed.
With these new destinations, the global carrier now flies to 55 cities in 35 African countries.
