  • Published by Ozgur Tore

sgia newterminal2Turkish Airlines, the national flag carrier of Turkey, announced its maiden flight from its second airport in Istanbul, Sabiha Gökçen International Airport (SAW), to Dubai. The inaugural flight took off on December 25, 2015. Turkish Airlines currently flies 14 weekly flights to Dubai from its hub at Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST).

The inclusion of seven additional flights per week to and from Sabiha Gökçen, which is on the Asian side of Istanbul, will increase its capacity on routes to Dubai by nearly 50 per cent.

From March 2016, the airline will increase its weekly flights to 10 per week between Dubai and Sabiha Gökçen, further increasing frequencies and capacity on this route.

The daily flight TK 758 will take off from the Turkish SAW airport at 9.25pm and land in Dubai International (Terminal 1) at 3.50am. On return, TK 759 will leave Dubai International at 5.20am and arrive in Istanbul's second airport at 8.35am.

The additional flights will enable even greater opportunities for travelers for onward connections to Europe, the Middle East, and other parts of Asia.
