25 January 2007

Turkey's leading low cost airline, SunExpress, is to launch a twice-weekly direct service between London Stansted and Antalya.

The airline, which was founded as a joint venture by Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines, will be beginning its new service to the picturesque city on the Turkish Riviera at the beginning of next month. New services to Izmir, Turkey’s third largest city, and Ercan, North Cyprus, also look set to begin in March

A spokesperson for SunExpress said: "The new services between London Stansted and Turkey reflect the growing popularity and demand for Turkey as a destination in the UK, especially Antalya, the Turkish Riviera, Izmir and the resorts around the Aegean Sea."

The spokesperson added: "All of [these destinations] have a special appeal to the increasing number of independent travellers and those with second homes in the area."

The airline aims to reach out to golfing tourists who set out to enjoy the numerous courses of Belek, near Antalya, as well as to those seeking sun, history, culture and beaches.

The flights will operate every Monday and Thursday from 8 February, departing from Stansted at 10:30 to arrive in Antalya at 16:30 local time.

Services from Antalya will depart at 07:05 and arrive in Stansted at 09:30. Flight time is just four hours from Stansted to Antalya and 4 hours 30 minutes on the return leg.
