Turkey’s national air carrier Turkish Airlines (THY) has increased the number of its flights to Singapore.
Cengiz Inceosman, an executive of THY, said on Tuesday that the number of THY flights to Singapore rose from five to six in a week, adding that THY was planning to rise the number to seven in summer season.
Inceosman said that Singapore was THY’s first long flight destination, adding that THY had been flying to Singapore for 24 years.
Noting that Singapore was a transfer port for the flights to Far East, Inceosman said that THY was the most preferred company in the flights from Europe and Turkey to Singapore.
THY increased the number of weekly flights to Singapore from five to six due to high demand, he added.
Based in Istanbul, THY is one of the fastest growing and prosperous airlines in the world. It carries approximately 25 million passengers a year, with direct flights to 127 international and 37 domestic destinations.
THY posted 389 million Euro of profit in 2009, becoming one of the top companies in the world, behind Air China and Ryan Air, that recorded the highest profit in 2009.
