Not surprisingly, Turkish Airlines have been always at the top of the airlines ratings, and following I am going to explain you why.

This year I decided to plan a trip before the summer holidays and I went for New York. This time I wanted to do something alternative, so I avoided the direct flights from Milan. I thought about traveling with a foreign company, making a stop in their country of origin and visiting it a little bit. It was a long time since I wanted to see Istanbul, so what better company if not Turkish Airlines?!

Turkish Airlines offer a wonderful opportunity to all their passengers. Here you could read about what I am talking about: they propose to all their passengers in transit trough Istanbul, during the stopover between 6 and 24 hours, an exclusive free service called “TourIstanbul”. Since 2009, it has already transferred and gave a taste Istanbul to almost a quarter of million passengers. 

Confident about the renowned Turkish hospitality, and with the aim of exceeding expectations with unique products and services, Turkish Airlines have created for their passengers this different and pleasant experience. With Touristanbul the flag carrier offers free transfers, visit to iconic places, as well as a taste of the renowned Turkish cuisine; an experience that allows the customers to understand the history and cultural mix which made Istanbul a vibrant and fascinating city.

In order to have access to Touristanbul, passengers have to travel with an international Turkish Airlines flight with a stopover between 6 and 24 hours in Istanbul. Tours depart everyday from the Istanbul Atatürk Airport Hotel Desk, with the following pre-scheduled time: from 8:30 am to 11:00 am; from 09:00 to 15:00; from 09:00 to 18:00; from 12:00 to 18:00 and from 16:00 to 21:00. The tour program includes the main attractions of Istanbul such as Topkapı Palace, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Grand Bazaar, Galata Tower, Dolmabahçe Palace and many more. 🕌

I find this is an excellent opportunity to fly with Turkish Airlines. In fact, in addition to a perfect service before and during the flight (just to list a few: massage chairs, delicious Turkish cuisine with chef on board, HD cinema with the best films, wide selection of wines and spirits), they give you a free transfer to discover of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Istanbul. 🇹🇷

Thanks Turkish Airlines! ✈️
