Passengers will have the chance to extend their trip and make the most with a stopover in Istanbul, a city that is brimming with delicious food, steeped in history and rich with culture.
At no extra cost, passengers can benefit from a free stopover service on the outbound or the return journey, they simply need to send an application to the relevant country’s e-mail address at least 72 hours before the first flight.
The new service includes a one-night stay in a four-star hotel for economy class passengers, and a two-night stay in a five-star hotel for business class passengers.
Free accommodation will apply to return ticket holders who are flying to or from the UK from any of the following five UK airports - London Gatwick, London Heathrow, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester.
Commenting on the launch of the new stopover service, Turkish Airlines general manager, London, Celal Baykal, said: “It is with great pleasure that we are announcing our new initiative available for passengers with round trip tickets to Africa, Asia, Far East, Middle East destinations.
