I believe that by joining with a global network company such as Turkish Airlines we will set to sign many more successful projects.”

Turkish Airlines Board Member İsmail Gercek said: “We have held the title of Europe’s Best Airline now for two consecutive years and it makes perfect sense that we align ourselves with the best and most recognisable sports figures in the word.
