Turkish Airlines now connects Gassim and Salzburg with Istanbul hub

Salzburg in Austria is the latest European destination for Turkish Airlines. The route's launch was celebrated on 28 May by the airport's CEO Roland Hermann, and Turkish Airlines' Senior VP Marketing & Sales, Zya Taskent. The inaugural flight was operated by a 737-800 resplendent in a special livery promoting the airline's new sponsorship deal with German football team (and Champions League finalists) Borussia Dortmund.

  • Another week, and two more airports get added to Turkish Airlines‘ vast network of routes from Istanbul Atatürk (IST). This week’s lucky airports are Gassim (ELQ) in Saudi Arabia, and Salzburg (SZG) in Austria. Gassim becomes the airline’s seventh destination in Saudi Arabia, while Salzburg becomes its second Austrian destination (after Vienna). Both routes will be served with four weekly flights operated by the airline’s 737-800s, and, not surprisingly, neither route is served by any other carrier. In addition Turkish Airlines has also expanded at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen (SAW) with the addition of a new daily service to Milan Malpensa (MXP), and in Antalya (AYT), with the launch of weekly, seasonal flights to Hamburg (HAM).
