While the pandemic is still ongoing, it seems that people do not intend to give up their passion for traveling. This said, Turkey seems to be among the countries that will receive the most significant share of the tourism pie this year.

SunExpress on the other hand has always been a company that offers important travel opportunities, especially for visitors who will come to this country. It is a joint-venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, and will offer additional flights to the benefit of passengers who want to fly to Turkey, soon.

SunExpress has decided to expand its UK network to connect five British airports to destinations in Turkey, this summer. On top of its existing Luton services, SunExpress will operate flights from Gatwick, Manchester, Birmingham and Edinburgh with seven weekly direct flights and one-way ‘teaser’ fares prices to start from £59.

As per information provided by the company, SunExpress plans to have Antalya, Dalaman and Izmir on the Turkish Mediterranean coast as well as Ankara and Gaziantep in Anatolia, among destinations to fly to.

A statement from top management of Sunexpress said: "Travelers from all five of our airports are longing for well-deserved holidays in the sun at suitable prices. We are very happy to offer attractive and direct connections to the most beautiful destinations in Turkey again, next season.”

Flights are already on sale through the website or through tour operators and travel agencies.

On the other hand, SunExpress will serve Antalya from all five British airports and offer flights to Dalaman from Gatwick and Manchester. Also, it has been informed that SunExpress flights will connect Izmir, Ankara and Gaziantep to Luton.
