Turkish Airlines will launch service from Vancouver with three weekly flights in June, making YVR the third Canadian gateway for the carrier.
Starting June 9, 2020, the airline will operate three weekly YVR-IST flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, bringing Turkish’s number of weekly Canadian flights to 12; currently, Turkish Airlines operates six weekly flights to Toronto and three to Montreal.
Roundtrip flights to Vancouver will be serviced with the B787-900 Dreamliner aircraft with 30 Business and 270 Economy seat capacity.
“Consistently increasing our scope and activity area as the airline that operates the world’s largest international flight network is paramount to maintaining our dominant position in the market,” said M. İlker Aycı, Turkish Airlines’ chairman of the board and the executive committee. “As one of our primary areas of operation, our performance in the North American continent is certainly a net positive for us. We are currently operating nine weekly flights to Canada with Toronto and Montreal as our current destinations. With the Vancouver flights starting in June, this number will increase to 12. Rendering almost every corner of the world within reach with a privileged comfort concept, our most visible motivation as Turkish Airlines is to facilitate infinite discoveries. Just like with our over 300 destinations, we are happy to offer this opportunity to Vancouver, one of the most important cities in Canada, with our unique service mentality.”
