The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) granted authorization to Turkish Airlines (THY) for flights to Amsterdam, Brussels and London from Ankara as part of a notice to promote international flights.
The DGCA announced on its official website that following the permissions granted to BoraJet's Munich flights and Pegasus Airways' Baku and Amman flights from the Ankara Esenboğa Airport, THY's application regarding the above-mentioned flights was accepted.
Evaluating the applications of the airline companies that seek to benefit from subsidies, the DCGA authorized THY to operate flights to the capitals of the Netherlands, Belgium and the U.K. from Ankara via its subsidy AnadoluJet.
The flights are expected to begin within three months, and be offered three times per week during the summer and at least twice per week during the winter.
Previously, flights from Ankara totaled 11 destinations in six countries. Considering the newly-authorized flights, 17 destinations in 11 counties will be available departing from Turkey's capital.
