Turkish Airlines increases capacity on London Gatwick to Antalya route

Turkish Airlines has announced that it has increased capacity on its daily flights from London Gatwick to Antalya by 20% for October.

The increase in capacity comes as Turkey’s national flag carrier will now operate the Airbus A321 on the route.

Antalya, resting on Turkey’s world-famous Turquoise Coast, has for a long time been a popular holiday destination for Britons looking for value family holidays to golfing getaways, with the area being home to several European Tour standard courses.

Antalya is also a popular diving destination, boasting Turkey’s first and only underwater museum, the Side Underwater Museum, which features 110 different sculptures and is open all year round for divers to enjoy. The airline allows passengers to carry one full set of diving equipment, for free, on this route.

Celal Baykal, the airline's general manager in London, said: “Antalya has had a fantastic summer, with thousands of Britons jetting off for a chance to enjoy the gateway to Turkey’s picturesque riviera.

“With demand remaining high throughout September and into October, increasing capacity on the route made complete sense as we are eager to give as many people as possible the chance to widen their world and explore Antalya.”
