Turkish Airlines (THY) and Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality City Theaters have recently signed protocol for cooperation which allowed plays performed by the City Theaters to be offered for viewing through THY's in-flight entertainment system as of June 1.
The plays will be offered on all domestic and international THY flights that feature its Planet Entertainment System. Complete with subtitles, the plays can be enjoyed by Turkish and international passengers alike.
This will help the City Theaters, having performed for over a century, to reach millions of THY passengers and hopefully attract newer audiences.
