Turkish Airlines honours Dubai travel agencies

DUBAI, March 3, 2016

Turkish Airlines recently hosted its annual Travel Agency Awards and a gala dinner to recognise travel agents across Dubai for being an intrinsic part of the airline’s advancement in the region.

The airline recorded a healthy passenger growth of 9.2 per cent across the GCC markets in 2015, as compared to the previous year.

The event, which welcomed over 250 guests including Mustafa Levent Bilgen, the Turkish ambassador to the UAE; Erdem Ozan, the Turkish consul general in Dubai, and senior officials from Dubai’s civil aviation department, was held at the Park Hyatt in Dubai.

The airline acknowledged partners for their strong support and role in growing passenger traffic from the Emirate. Additionally, it also recognised them for being a contributor to the 2.6 per cent capacity growth in Dubai in 2015.

Emre Ismailoglu, general manager, Turkish Airlines, in Dubai, said: “We are delighted to host this event for the travel industry. We would like to thank all the travel agents we work with for their continual support and commitment to the airline’s growth.”

He added: “In December 2015 we added seven flights from Dubai Airport to Sabiha Gokcen Airport which is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. We now have 21 flights between Dubai and Istanbul and we are planning to add to this number in March. This is obvious testimony to our success in this region.” – TradeArabia News Service
