Turkish Airlines added Sharjah, its third destination in the UAE


1 min read

Flying to more countries than any other airline in the world, Turkish Airlines consistently continues to enhance its flight network. The national flag carrier now started scheduled flights to Sharjah, one of the favorite tourism centers of United Arab Emirates. Sharjah became the 307th destination that added to the extensive flight network of the global brand.

As Turkish Airlines’ third flight destination in the UAE after Abu Dhabi and Dubai, flights to Sharjah will be conducted on the Istanbul-Sharjah-Istanbul route.

During the launch of the inaugural flight, Turkish Airlines Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) Ahmet Olmuştur stated the following; “With Istanbul Airport, a new era has begun for Turkish aviation and tourism sectors. With having such a monumental facility as our home base, now we have an unmatched advantage to further accelerate our network expansion performance. As part of this performance, today we are highly pleased to add Sharjah as our third destination in the United Arab Emirates after Abu Dhabi and Dubai to ever-expanding flight network of Turkish Airlines.”

Selected as the Cultural Capital of Arab World in 1998, Sharjah is a coastal destination away from the desert heat and it is the third biggest and third most populous emirate of United Arab Emirates. Modern but old, crowded but peaceful, Sharjah’ rich history, culture and economy attracts the passengers traveling here.
