New hub for Scotland as inaugural Istanbul flight begins
Scotland football legend Dennis Law dropped in to welcome Turkish Airlines to Edinburgh Airport yesterday as it received its inaugural flight linking the Scottish Capital with the iconic Turkish city of Istanbul. The new service will run four times a week with Turkish Airlines confident that the frequency will quickly change to daily flights given the popularity of Istanbul as a destination and transport hub.
As well as creating a direct link between Scotland and Turkey, this route also offers connectivity to a range of global destinations including Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing, Bangkok, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Delhi, Mumbai, Tel Aviv, Dubai, Narita and Osaka.
