The partnership represents a strong commitment for both sides and will involve numerous joint activities and programmes. Most importantly, Turkish Airlines will be the airline of choice for all BVB international flights. Turkish Airlines serves 12 German cities with around 250 flights a week. Then, from its hub in Istanbul, the airline offers connections that allow the team to travel across the world.

The Premium Partnership with BVB once again underlines Turkish Airlines’ commitment to align with the best. The club has won the German championship twice, is the current DFB Cup champion, and is also a strong performer in the Champion’s League. With eight German championship titles, three German DFB Cup titles and one Champion’s League title, Dortmund ranks fifth in the all-time German Bundesliga table.

As Europe’s Best Airline (2011 and 2012 Skytrax ranking), Turkish Airlines is a natural partner for Borussia Dortmund, combining excellence in sports with excellence in aviation and service. The football club stands for tradition, regional identity, hard work and successs – all principles that Turkish Airlines also values and strives to exhibit.

Hamdi Topçu, Chairman of Turkish Airlines, said: “We are excited to accompany Borussia Dortmund on its path towards success in the near future and are looking forward to a fruitful partnership.

“Turkish Airlines and Borussia Dortmund share a similar success story. Dortmund has a very notable set of players, many of them young and successful. The company also invests heavily in talent building. Several of the Borussia Dortmund players are members of both the German and Turkish national teams.”

Hans-Joachim Watzke, Borussia Dortmund’s Chief Executive, added: “We are glad to have Turkish Airlines, a global brand, as our Partner. Turkish Airlines is a strong brand with obviously high quality and a first-class service. We are looking forward to co-operate with Turkish Airlines and pleased that they chose Borussia Dortmund as a strong partner to realise their goals.”
