Turkish Airlines starts Palermo and Krakow flights
Turkish Airlines which flies to more countries than any other airlines in the world, has added two new destinations to its network this week. The airlines will now fly to Palermo, the capital of Sicily in southern Italy, increasing its number of destinations in the country to nine following its routes to Rome, Milan, Venice, Naples, Bergamo, Bologna, Catania, and Bari.
The Turkish flag carrier will operate the Palermo flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays on a reciprocal basis on a Boeing 737-800 type aircraft from Istanbul Airport to Punta Raisi Airport at $259 including tax. Palermo is Turkish Airlines’ 344th destination.
“As we strengthen our bonds with Italy with the new route, our guests from Palermo will be able to enjoy the unparalleled flight network of our flag carrier on their travels while our guests from all around the world will have the chance to experience Palermo’s wonders with Turkish Airlines privilege,” says Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Ekşi.
Earlier this week, the airlines also launched flights to the historic city of Krakow in Poland as its second destination in the country after Warsaw. It will operate Krakow flights with narrow-body aircraft three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, on a reciprocal basis. Passengers can travel from Istanbul to Krakow and back with prices starting from $255 (tax included).
Says Turkish Airlines Chief Investment & Technology Officer Levent Konukçu: “As the airline flying to more countries than any other in the world, we are glad to add Krakow, our second destination in Poland after Warsaw, to our flight network. We are connecting Krakow to the world with Turkish Airlines' unique flight experience.”
