Newcastle International Airport welcomes award-winning Turkish airline to the region

Corendon Airlines, an award-winning Turkish airline, has started twice weekly flights to the popular Turkish resorts of Antalya and Dalaman from the North East’s largest airport.

The arrival of the low-cost Turkish airline adds to Newcastle International Airport’s biggest ever programme to Turkey this summer, traditionally a popular choice for the North East travelling public.

With up to 36 flights a week to resorts across Turkey available this summer from Newcastle, the extra capacity added by Corendon Airlines will give passengers even more choice.

Passengers wishing to experience Turkey’s “warm summer climate and beautiful beaches” can do so with fares from £39.99, excluding taxes and surcharges, one way with the new airline partner, to the popular seaside resorts of Antalya and Dalaman.

Chris Ion, aviation development manager at Newcastle International Airport, said: “Turkey is a fantastic option for North East passengers looking for an affordable holiday this year. The country offers something for everyone, from historic ruins to bustling cities and all-inclusive beach resorts that are excellent value for money.

“We are delighted to welcome Corendon Airlines to the North East ahead of what is expected to be a very busy summer season. The addition of this award-winning, low-cost airline brings extra capacity and even more choice for our passengers looking for low-cost flights to Turkey.”

Mine Aslan, commercial director at Corendon Airlines, added: “We are excited to start our Newcastle operations offering flights to Antalya and Dalaman, the most popular holiday spots in Turkey. As a new airline in Newcastle International Airport, we believe that our flights will be a good option for British holidaymakers.

“While hoping that our operations from Newcastle will be a success, we are planning to expand our flight schedule throughout the winter season.”
