Corendon Airlines, the European leisure carrier, has announced the launch of its flight from Birmingham Airport to Turkey offering sunseekers much needed holiday choices for summer.
The airline, which is based at Antalya Airport, will now operate flights twice a week to Dalaman and three times a week to Antalya. The connections are operated using the airline’s fleet of 189-seat B737-800 aircraft.
Antalya is located in the west of the Mediterranean, known as ‘The Turkish Riviera’ offering a rich blend of archaeological and natural beauty. Situated on the Turquoise Coast, the Dalaman area of Turkey is an amazingly diverse holiday destination, with a range of stunning seascapes, lively bars, historical spots, and seaside restaurants.
Paul Riches, Commercial representative of Corendon Airlines, said: ‘We are very excited to launch our service from Birmingham Airport. We plan to increase our Birmingham flights to many other popular holiday destinations in the following seasons. We aim to provide holidaymakers direct and comfortable flights to sunny destinations and we are confident our Birmingham flights will be successful in summer 2022 and beyond.’
Tom Screen, Aviation Director for Birmingham Airport, said: ‘We are thrilled to welcome Corendon Airlines to Birmingham and are pleased initial sales numbers are strong. This bodes well as the aviation sector gets back on its feet and the British public take to the skies once again after a two-year Covid-19 layoff. We look forward to developing the partnership with Corendon Airlines further in the coming years.’
Corendon, which is already on sale to Antalya and Dalaman for summer 2022, has said that it will extend its Antalya service into winter 2022/23. Winter tickets will go on sale in the next few
