Turkish Airlines is to increase the frequency of its Edinburgh-Istanbul route from four times-weekly to daily.
The carrier will add a fifth weekly flight from March 31, before moving to a daily service from May 20. The route is served by A319 and B737-800 aircraft.
Turkish Airlines launched flights to the Scottish capital in July 2012, and commenting on the increase in frequency, Edinburgh airport’s CEO Gordon Dewar said:
“For this announcement to be made within a year of the airline’s inaugural flight in July is a rare and unprecedented event and an amazing achievement for Edinburgh. This decision is testament to the hard work of our staff and partners over the last 12 months.
The carrier also recently announced plans to increase the frequency of its Manchester-Istanbul route to double daily from the end of March (see online news February 6).
