New Route: Durban - Istanbul

Turkish Airlines announced that they would be establishing a new international route between Durban and Istanbul, launching before 15 November 2015. Turkish Airlines will operate a four times a week service with an Airbus A330-300 aircraft via Johannesburg.

The airline also endeavours to roll out a direct daily flight route as demand increases ahead of the 2022 Commonwealth Games that will be hosted by the City of Durban.
