Turkish Airlines expands presence in Western Hemisphere

Turkish Airlines has added two more nations to its global reach by launching new routes to Bogota, Columbia’s capital, and Panama City, capital of Panama. 

These new routes join Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Toronto, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, Boston, Montreal, San Francisco and Miami as Turkish Airlines rapidly grows its presence in the Western Hemisphere.

The inaugural flight to Bogota and Panama City was announced by İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines chairman. 

Aycı stated: “With the launch of the Panama City and Bogota flight, Turkish Airlines has increased its number of destinations in the Americas to 14, strengthening its flight network across Central and South America.

“We’re extremely proud to support to our country’s closer cooperation with Colombia as negotiated by our President during his visit to Latin America, by launching this new flight.


“We’ll also add Atlanta to our extensive network later this month and will continue to expand our reach in the Americas.”

Both cities are home base to Star Alliance partners, Avianca in Colombia and Copa in Panama, and the link to Istanbul and Turkish Airlines’ network will be of great benefit to travellers, adding even more connectivity.
