- Turkish Airlines has started its 13th destination in Germany on 18 June from its Istanbul Atatürk (IST) base, and world’s 18th busiest airport (2013 figures), namely to Münster/Osnabrück (FMO). The four times weekly 2,028-kilometre service, operated by a mix of equipment, will face no direct competition on the city pair. Five days later the Star Alliance carrier also started four times weekly triangular flights to Abidjan (ABJ) in the Ivory Coast and Cotonou (COO) in Benin. The 737-900-operated, 4,648-kilometre outbound sector operates to the largest commercial city in Benin first, before continuing onto the Ivory Coast’s biggest economic hub. There is no competition on either sector. See how Münster/Osnabrück Airport’s FTWA compares to the others sent in this week from around the world.
