Turkish Airlines has now extended its 'Stopover' service for its transfer passengers, departing from Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Australia, Russia and Belarus to arrive to the U.S., Europe, South American countries, U.K., Ireland, Far East, Middle East, North Africa and Asia.*
Passengers from these countries who have over 20 hours of connection time in Istanbul can avail this service which was earlier offered to passengers travelling from Pakistan only. 'Stopover' services offer passengers a complimentary accommodation and a great opportunity to discover the unique beauties of Istanbul during their transit.
Travellers will receive an accommodation cheque from Turkish Airlines' authorised staff after completing the flight booking process for the passenger. This cheque will allow economy class passengers to stay for one night at a 4-star hotel; and for business class passengers to stay 2 nights at a 5-star hotel in Sultanahmet and Taksim, generally described as the central points of Istanbul.
Mr Ahmet Olmu?tur, Turkish Airlines' Chief Marketing Officer, said: "After receiving positive response from our passengers we are excited to extend our 'Stopover' programme to other countries. We want to provide our passengers an opportunity to experience Turkish hospitality and several other attractions that the beautiful city of Istanbul has to offer. We are confident that our passengers will benefit through this programme and will make the most out of it."
