  • A new agreement signed with Turkish Airlines will see an increase in flights between the two cities

Turkish Airlines has announced an increase in flights between Malaga and Istanbul, with hopes that it will facilitate the increasing number of visitors arriving to the city from Asia and the Middle East.

The company's director for Andalucía, Mehmet Akalin, confirmed that the route will operate ten flights per week from 25 March, up from seven currently, in light of the route's popularity.

Akalin highlighted that the company has been operating flights to Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport since 2011. “During the last seven years in this amazing city, Turkish Airlines has been awarded 'Best Airline in Europe' for the last seven years and 'Best airline in southern Europe' for nine consecutive years, according to the Skytrax customer satisfaction survey.”

Turkish Airlines offers flights between 120 different countries and over 300 destinations, “more than any other airline in the world, uniting cultures and connecting the world through our hub at Ataturk Airport Istanbul, which is at the heart of three continents: Asia, Europe and Africa,” Akalin said.
