Airport Taxis Welcomes News from Official UEFA EURO 2016 Airline Partner Turkish Airlines that Double Daily Flights from Birmingham Airport to Istanbul Start in May 2016

Airport Taxis Yellow Travel Limited is delighted to see confirmation from Birmingham Airport that Turkish Airlines is increasing its services to Istanbul from 12 flights per week to double daily flights from Monday May 30th 2016. That’s almost exactly 83 years after the airline was founded in May 1933.

Airport Taxis Yellow Travel Limited, Managing Director, Darren Thorpe said, “It’s gearing up to be an exciting summer for us as this joint announcement from Birmingham Airport and Turkish Airlines means that over 600 additional passengers per week will be travelling to and from The West Midlands. This also gives the people of the region and our airport passengers access to the entire Turkish Airlines network of 283 destinations out of Istanbul. The expansion of Turkish Airlines in Birmingham Airport has been dramatic over the past 8 years. By the way, did you know that Turkish Airlines has won Best Airline in Europe 5 years in a row.”

Birmingham Airport, C.E.O., Paul Kehoe said, “Turkish Airlines is a fantastic carrier and partner to have here at Birmingham Airport. Starting eight years ago the service has gone from strength to strength carrying hundreds of thousands of passengers. The Turkish Airlines in-flight product is award winning and extremely popular – which is demonstrated by more and more people choosing to experience the service, reliability and affordability it offers. I congratulate the Turkish Airlines team on doing a great job here in the region and increasing passenger numbers year-on-year and for further committing to Birmingham Airport.”

Birmingham Airport has quoted Turkish Airlines General Manager for Birmingham, Selim Ozturk as saying, “Birmingham Airport is a hugely successful base for us and we have grown significantly over the past eight years. This double daily announcement gives passengers even more choice and with 283 onward destinations via Istanbul throughout the Middle East, the Far East and Africa, Birmingham Airport really is the gateway to the world with our award winning airline.”

Meanwhile, it’s been formally revealed that Turkish Airlines is the Official Airline Partner for the UEFA EURO 2016 football extravaganza in France this summer.

Turkish Airlines, Chairperson of the Board, M. İlker Aycı said, “Turkish Airlines has endorsed sports all over the world for many years. We firmly believe in its ability to unite people from different nations and cultures on the playing field. The partnership with UEFA EURO 2016 is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the very best in European football with fans from all over the world. We very much look forward to the competition and look forward to supporting the Turkish team and the rest of the competing nations throughout the tournament.”

The global sponsorship arrangement makes Turkish Airlines the very first airline partner in the 55 years of the European football competition. Watch out for the new branding on the planes you’ll see at Birmingham Airport.
