Turkish Airlines was voted the best airline of Europe, and serves as an important link for Nepal-bound tourists, businessmen, Kathmandu-based expatriates, and the Nepali diaspora because it is the only airline that connects Nepal directly to Europe.
Istanbul’s advantage is its location, which is ideal for layovers short and long for passengers between Nepal to South America, Australia, North America and the Far East with just one-stop hop away from anywhere in the world.
Eight months after its overnight shift from Istanbul’s old airport to its new one in what was called the ‘Great Move’, passengers now have much more efficient transfers and connections. With three of its six runways and four of the five concourses compete, the airport at the edge of the Black Sea is well on its way to become the world’s busiest. Taking advantage of the airport’s location Turkey’s flag carrier will have a 500 aircraft fleet serving 400 cities around the world by 2025.
