Turkish Airlines Celebrates 10 Years at Dublin Airport

The airline first started flight operations in summer 2006 with a twice weekly year-round service. In 2009, Turkish Airlines increased its flight operations to a daily service and further growth in passenger numbers saw the airline expand again last year as it moved to double daily flights between the two cities.

“We are very proud of our decade long partnership with Turkish Airlines and we congratulate them on reaching this major milestone,” said Vincent Harrison, Dublin Airport Managing Director. Turkish Airlines has gone from strength to strength since it started operations at Dublin Airport 10 years ago. By the end of this summer the airline will have carried one million passengers between Dublin and Istanbul since it started. The continuing growth in passenger numbers is testament to the popularity of the route for business and leisure passengers.”

Dr Temel Kotil, Turkish Airlines Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted to be in Ireland to celebrate this important milestone in our airline’s history in Ireland. We will continue to invest in Ireland and have a competitive product offering that will serve the Irish market well for both business and leisure travel. We look forward to investing further in pilot training as well as hiring key staff to sustain growth in the Irish market.”

Dublin Airport will continue to work closely with Turkish Airlines to progress further opportunities in the future, Vincent Harrison added. Passengers travelling with Turkish Airlines from Dublin to Istanbul can connect directly into one of the airline’s 289 destinations globally.
