Ceremonial bread, ribbon-cutting, press briefing and cake – the perfect recipe to a route launch for Turkish Airlines, which has started its third Romanian destination – Cluj-Napoca – on 1 September. Atlasglobal, which began its flights just a month ago, provides the direct competition.
- Turkish Airlines added its third destination in Romania, by inaugurating flights to Cluj-Napoca (CLJ) from its Istanbul Atatürk (IST) base. With existing services to Bucharest and Constanta, flights to Cluj-Napoca, which began on 1 September, will be operated four times weekly by a mixture of the Star Alliance carrier’s A320 family of equipment. Atlasglobal, which only began its own services to Cluj-Napoca on 1 August, provides the competition on the airport pair, operating twice-weekly services. See how Cluj-Napoca Airport’s FTWA compares to others from around the world.
