Turkish Airlines to add Mexico and six other new destinations in 2019


1 min read

Turkish Airlines is launching regular flights to Mexico in August 2019.

The three-times-a-week flights, connecting Istanbul with Mexico City and Cancun, will use the airline’s new B787-9 aircraft and will operate out of the New Istanbul Airport which is slated to be the world’s largest once all phases are completed.

During 2019, Turkish Airlines also plans to introduce flights to Sharjah, Bali and Rovaniemi (Finland). It will also add three new African destinations – Marrakesh, Port Sudan and Luxor – to its current, world-leading list of 55 destinations on the continent.

During 2018, Turkish Airlines introduced flights to Freetown, Samarqand, Aqaba, Krasnodar, Moroni, Banjul and Lusaka bringing its total of worldwide destinations to 306.
