Turkish Airlines begins nonstop service to Miami

ISTANBUL, October 27, 2015

Turkish Airlines is celebrating the launch of its first flight to Miami, its eighth US destination, by offering Dubai residents flying to the American city a special round-trip Economy fare of Dh3,055 ($831.5).

The airline’s discounted offer, available until December 2, will encourage Dubai travellers to visit Miami, a city renowned for its art-deco buildings, beaches and numerous entertainment options. While the Florida destination is renowned for being a hit with the young, it is also well-loved by middle-aged adults for its art scene and culinary legacy, evocative of Cuba’s gastronomic delights.

“Turkish Airlines has manifested its commitment to enhancing the links between Turkey and the US by providing another route to the US, which is crucial for us,” said Ilker Aycı, chairman of Turkish Airlines. “The beautiful city of Miami will be our first destination in Florida, eighth destination in the US and 12th destination in the world.”

To further illustrate its commitment to the US, the airline engaged seven-time Guinness World Records holder The Sand Sculpture Company and its owner Ted Siebert to build the tallest sandcastle in Miami. This gesture represented how Turkish Airlines would bridge Miami to the world through one-stop access to more than 278 destinations.

The sandcastle had broken the current Guinness World Records title which stands at 41 ft. 3.67 in. The new record now stands at 45 ft. 10.25 in.

Turkish Airlines’ new nonstop service between Miami and Istanbul enhances connectivity to the world for South Floridians including emerging markets in Africa and Asia. The route will be operated seven times a week both directions using the airline’s Boeing 777-300ER and will provide the carrier’s award-winning inflight service to business and leisure travellers in the Miami area.

The discounted air fares are available across Business, Comfort and Economy cabins.– TradeArabia News Service
