Kuwait City, Kuwait: Turkish Airlines, Europe’s best airline for the sixth year in a row*, welcomed its partners and stakeholders to an evening reception as it celebrated its continued market growth in 2016.
The event which was held at JW Mariott in Kuwait City, welcomed the airline’s top major companies and organizations, members of Turkish Corporate club, from all over the country, as well as key journalists, who have supported the airline over the years.
The Turkish Corporate Club, which is a travel program allowing companies, organizations and foundations to save on all their business travel expenses, while also offering a wide variety of cost-effective advantages has been experiencing an increased interest in demand and especially from its market in Kuwait.
Customer demand has been continuously increasing in the Kuwait market and Turkish Airlines has been very responsive in meeting this demand through fleet growth and adding new destinations, to target the needs of the largest number of passengers possible.
Sami Aydogan, General Manager, Turkish Airlines, Kuwait City, said: “Today is a very important day for us as we continue to witness strong growth from our Kuwaiti market. It is also imperative that we have all our corporate customers with us here as they have been a crucial part of our growth, and will definitely prove to be a catalyst in our growth plans for the future. Whether it is through the comfort of our aircraft seats or the excellence of our catering, our aim is to always to provide the best possible services to our customers in the business yard by offering exclusive advantages for companies allied with Turkish Airlines.”
Turkish Airlines in Kuwait today flies to a large number of countries globally, which include 111 destinations from Europe and 15 destinations from USA and Canada.
New direct flights were launched earlier last year for the first time from Trabzon, Bursa, Izmir, and Antalya to Kuwait, providing Kuwaitis with the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of these Turkish cities
