Turkish Airlines started a new route to Bali in Indonesia yesterday (17 July) from the new Istanbul Airport.
The carrier is utilising its first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on the connection as it continues to grow its global network.
Turkish Airlines will fly three times a week until 7 August before upping the frequency to a daily rotation from 7 August to 26 October.
The inaugural flight had a passenger load factor of 84 per cent, the airline said.
Turkish Airlines senior vice president sales (2nd Region), Kerem Sarp said: “While our new generation aircraft continuing to join our fleet, we feel highly encouraged to launch new direct flights to farther destinations in the world.
“By inagurating direct flights to Bali, our second destination in Indonesia, we keep strengthening our mission to reach all corners of the world.”
