National flag carrier Turkish Airlines (THY) this year aims to carry a record number of passengers in the Italian market, where it entered with a Rome flight 60 years ago.
Having flown 1.6 million passengers on its Italy lines in 2018, the carrier expects to close the current year with 1.7 million passengers, a 6% year-on-year increase given intensive demands and bookings.
THY operates 141 flights to seven destinations in Italy from the north to the south of the country on a weekly basis. It is also working to add new lines and to increase flight points in the Italian market.
The carrier’s most important flight destination in Italy is the capital Rome where it initiated flights 60 years ago. It operates 37 flights a week to the city alone, including four flights from the new Istanbul Airport, which officially opened on April 6, taking over air traffic from the now-closed Atatürk Airport.
It also hold one flight from Sabiha Gökçen Airport, Istanbul’s main air hub on the city’s Asian side, and two from the Ankara’s Esenboğa Airport.
Seeking to raise the number of passengers in the market, THY brought 1,000 Italian agency representatives to Istanbul under the coordination of Italian directorates and tourism consultancies this year.
