 Operating flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays, Turkish Airlines aims to optimize connectivity and convenience for passengers traveling between Istanbul and Tripoli.

Ambitious plans for Australian routes

Turkish Airlines' ambitions extend beyond Africa, with plans to offer non-stop services to Australian cities such as Sydney and Melbourne by 2026. Leveraging advanced aircraft such as the Airbus A350-1000, the airline aims to establish itself as a preferred choice for long-haul travel, catering to the growing demand for direct connections between Turkey and Australia.

The airline's commitment to fleet expansion and modernization is evident in its recent agreements to lease Boeing 737 MAX 8s and orders for Airbus aircraft. With a focus on enhancing operational efficiency and passenger comfort, Turkish Airlines continues to invest in state-of-the-art aircraft, positioning itself for sustainable growth and competitiveness in the global aviation market.

Global connectivity and economic impact
