Turkish Airlines add three more routes from Sabiha Gökçen
Turkish Airlines continues its expansion from Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW)this week, with three new services, all operated daily by the Star Alliance carrier’s 737-800 fleet. Operations to Düsseldorf (DUS) will be flown against three competing airlines: Pegasus Airlines (11 weekly), SunExpress (one) and SunExpress Germany (one). The former provides double-daily rivalry on the second of the three new routes to Tel Aviv (TLV) also. While there is no direct competition on the final new route to Frankfurt (FRA), both SunExpress and SunExpress Germany have withdrawn from the city pair at the end of the summer season, with the former having operated the service last winter. It is therefore worthy of note that Turkish Airlines is parent company to both withdrawing carriers.
