Turkish flag carrier Turkish Airlines has announced it is increasing the number of flights between iGA Istanbul Airport and Manchester (MAN/EGCC) from 19th May 2024.

A fourth flight will be added on the route bringing the total number of flights per week to 25.

The additional flight will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Manchester General Manager, Serhat Gök, said: “Turkish Airlines’ four additional weekly flights to Istanbul will meet the expected rise in demand from customers keen to visit Türkiye’s top tourism destination during the summer. 

“As a culturally rich city where east meets west, Istanbul is incredibly popular with British and European travellers. 

“The city is renowned for its history and iconic landmarks – including the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and Grand Bazaar – as well as its breath-taking views and amazing nightlife.

“Adding further weekly flights will give customers more opportunities to visit one of Türkiye’s most popular spots for travellers keen to immerse themselves in its rich history and culture.”

Passengers from Manchester can also connect globally via iGA Istanbul Airport on Turkish Airlines network which flies to more countries than any other airline.
