New Internal route for Turkish airlines
Turkish Airlines started its second new domestic route in as many weeks when it began thrice-weekly services from Istanbul (IST) to Canakkale (CKZ) in north-west Turkey using an A319. This raises to 34 the number of domestic destinations served by Turkish Airlines from Istanbul. The two airports are just 222 kilometres from each other. This becomes the airport’s first scheduled service. Canakkale is the nearest major town to the site of ancient Troy. The “wooden horse” which featured in the 2004 movie Troy is now located on the seafront as a tourist attraction.
