Mention the Seychelles to any of your friends and the immediate reaction is I really want  to go there. Now Turkish Airlines is launching flights to this exotic destination with direct flights from Dublin connecting in Istanbul

It was a very pleasant evening with food and drinks at the reception followed by a presentation. Hasan Mutlu, General Manager, Turkish Airlines, kicked off the presentation and mentioned that, although Turkish Airlines has been through some tough years, things are looking up and people are now starting to return to travelling to Istanbul. Turkish Airlines has won the Skytrax award for six years in a row as Europe’s Best Airline.
