Turkish Airlines’ UK network

Presently, Turkish Airlines operates twice-daily flights to Manchester from Istanbul. Its new routes from Antalya and Dalaman are seasonal, with no fixed date on when flights will finish announced as of now.

The flag carrier of Turkey operates flights to 5 airports in the United Kingdom – London Heathrow Airport, London Gatwick Airport, Manchester Airport, Birmingham Airport and Edinburgh Airport. The airline’s most extensive presence is at Gatwick Airport, with non-stop flights available to Istanbul, Antalya, Dalaman and Bodrum.

Antalya and Dalaman are two of the biggest draws along Turkey’s ‘Turquoise Coast.’ Interestingly, as the region is renowned for its world-class golf courses, Turkish Airlines will offer passengers the option to fly one full set of golf clubs completely free of charge on all flights.
