Emirates Launches Second Istanbul Gateway

Emirates recently touched down at Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, celebrating its second point of entry in Istanbul.

With the commencement of daily flights to the Turkish hub, Emirates increased its overall capacity to the city by 35 percent, offering a total of 18 services per week to the popular business and tourism destination.

“We have been operating flights to Istanbul for more than 28 years and in that time we have seen demand for our services grow exponentially.

We are confident that both the passenger and cargo demand is strong enough to warrant Emirates operating to both of Istanbul’s airports,” said Adnan Kazim, divisional senior vice president, strategic planning, revenue optimisation and aeropolitical affairs, Emirates.
