Turkish Airlines to take off from Graz Airport as of June

On 22 June 2015 Turkish Airlines is launching the scheduled connection from Graz to Istanbul.

Feldkirchen/Graz, 18/03/2015: The new air connection between Graz and Istanbul is available for booking as of today. For passengers at Graz Airport this is not only the fastest way to get to Istanbul, but also offers the opportunity to take advantage of many onward connections to the Near and Far East and Africa.

The first Turkish Airlines plane is scheduled to land in Graz at 14:45 on Monday, 22 June. There will be four flights a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Yusuf Kurt, General Manager of Turkish Airlines: “After Vienna and Salzburg, Graz is the third destination we are launching in Austria to continue our constant growth trend. The Graz flights allow our guests to take off directly from beautiful Styria. We warmly invite everyone to discover the world with us and wish all passengers using our service a pleasant flight.”

Provincial Councillor Mag. Dr. Christian Buchmann: “The successful business deal with Turkish Airlines after two years of intensive negotiations is a milestone for Styria. Extensive travel connections are essential for a business location. The direct link to the Istanbul hub opens a gateway to new markets. This benefits export-oriented Styrian companies and, as a result, numerous suppliers.”

No matter whether it’s for business or tourism – constantly growing Istanbul Airport offers many possibilities to reach numerous international destinations.

“We have been fighting for this cooperation with Turkish Airlines and for Istanbul as a destination on behalf of our passengers for a long time”, DI Wolfgang Malik, Chairman of the Board of Holding Graz, and Mag. Gerhard Widmann, CEO of Flughafen Graz Betriebs GmbH, explain. “The fact that Turkish Airlines will start flights as early as June – before the school holidays begin – is particularly gratifying!”
