IndiGo launches Istanbul services

India’s largest low-cost carrier IndiGo flew into Istanbul on March 20, 2019.  The airline recently announced Istanbul as its 16th international destination and will operate two daily direct flights between India and Istanbul effective March 2019. Prominent dignitaries representing the Turkish authorities welcomed an IndiGo flight with a water cannon salute at the Ataturk International Airport this evening.

Sakir Ozkan Torunlar, Ambassador of Turkey to India on the occasion of inaugural flight of IndiGo between Delhi and Istanbul said, "I congratulate all our Indian and Turkish friends who made the first ever Indian airliner's scheduled flights possible which will further connect the two most beautiful lands on earth. Indians and Turks, will have more opportunities two visit the other's country by direct flights of less than six hours, thanks to IndiGo and the Turkish Airlines, the flag carrier of Turkey."

William Boulter, Chief Commercial Officer, IndiGo said, “We are delighted to receive a heart-warming welcome from the Turkish authorities at Ataturk International Airport this evening. It is our privilege to be the first Indian carrier to fly into Turkey. Istanbul is one of the most attractive tourist cities in the world and the gateway from Asia into Europe. Istanbul holds immense potential for IndiGo, and this launch is part of organic expansion within Europe for us, as we complement our domestic network with international connectivity.”
