Turkey's national air carrier Turkish Airlines (THY) began to promote its flights to the Far East in the German market.

Speaking to the AA, THY's Stuttgart Manager Sefi Ebubekir Ozdemir said that they began a campaign to carry German clients to the rest of the world from Germany.

"With this purpose, we took the representatives of major German travel agencies to Hong Kong and Singapore," Ozdemir stressed.

We introduced THY's business, comfort and economy classes to the German travel agents. At the end of the trip to the Far East, the travel agents told us that THY was much better than most airlines, Ozdemir noted.

THY grows rapidly in all corners of the world. Our client portfolio in Germany is going through a change. In the past, most of our clients in Germany were Turks. In the past few years, most of our clients in Germany were Germans or individuals of other nationality, Ozdemir underlined.

THY has currently 9 offices in Germany. This number will jump to 11 with the offices to be opened in Bremen and Leipzig cities. With each passing day, THY becomes a giant in the German market, Ozdemir said.

THY carries passengers from Germany to Istanbul and from there to the rest of the world. The number of passengers flying with the THY is on the rise.

Our aim is to carry more Germans to global destinations. We carry passengers with newest planes, smiling crew members and award winning menus. With its affordable ticket prices and high quality, the THY has become a choice of German passengers, Ozdemir noted.

THY has 220 flights from 9 German airports to Turkey every week. The short waiting periods in Istanbul and the new CIP lounge get appreciated by our passengers, Ozdemir said.

Meanwhile, the THY will participate in one of the world's biggest tourism fairs, ITB Berlin, that will open its doors on March 7. At the fair, the THY will promote its newest services and programs.

THY is the national flag carrier airline of Turkey, headquartered in Istanbul. It operates scheduled services to 150 international and 41 domestic cities (38 domestic airports), serving a total of 187 airports, in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas.
