The Turkish carrier Atlasglobal Airlines today launched service between Stockholm Arlanda Airport and Istanbul Atatürk Airport. The new route to Turkey’s capital also enables passengers to make an easy transfer to reach more of the carrier’s destinations in that country. Chefs on board the aircraft prepare both Turkish and international dishes.

There are daily departures between Stockholm Arlanda and Istanbul Atatürk Airport, and flying time is three hours and thirty minutes. With this new route to the Istanbul hub, it will also be easy for passengers to continue on to other final destinations in Atlasglobal Airline’s offering, such as Trabzon, Izmir, Adana, Antalya, Kayseri and Gaziantep.

Passengers on the route’s maiden voyage and specially invited guests were treated to an event at the gate to celebrate the launch. Also on hand was Murat Koçak, counsellor at the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm.

“We have had a steady increase in air traffic to Turkey over the past five years together with an expandd offering. During this time, traffic between Turkey and Sweden has doubled. So we welcome Atlasglobal Airline’s investment in Stockholm, which will now give more Swedes the opportunity to fly non-stop to Turkey,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, airport director at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

With Atlasglobal Airline’s “Flying Chefs”, passengers will also be offered both Turkish and local dishes which are prepared on board. Passengers can fly in either Economy or Business Class, and tickets can easily be booked at www.atlasglb.com.
