Business-class service on Turkish

Turkish Airlines announced the launch of new, non-stop service between Boston’s Logan International Airport and Atatürk International Airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

The new service operates five times a week and, beginning June 9, the number of weekly flights will be increased.  Turkish Airlines uses Airbus A330 and A340 aircraft on this route.

Boston becomes the carrier’s sixth gateway in the United States, after New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Washington, D.C.

The new route complies with a codeshare agreement that Turkish Airlines began with JetBlue earlier this week.  Under the agreement, the carrier is allowed to place its code on JetBlue-operated flights into and out of both New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, as well as Boston’s Logan International Airport, from various U.S. cities including Detroit, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Fort Lauderdale, Salt Lake City, and Syracuse, among others.

Turkish Airlines was founded in 1933, and is the national flag carrier of Turkey.  The airline currently serves approximately 250 destinations worldwide.
