For passengers who are coming from Pakistan, THY, who has a dream of stopover application in Istanbul, will be welcomed free of charge in 4 or 5 star hotels in Sultanahmet and Taksim regions according to the ticket class. If the expected success is achieved without applying the pilot, the application will expand further.
Turkish Airlines, which will increase the number of transit passengers as well as contribute to Turkish tourism, will start quietly without a big project, which will be evident in the coming days when the ban on the import of large electronic items into the cabin on the US and UK flights will affect the number of transit passengers. While Turkish Airlines has 62 million passengers and 21 million transit passengers it carries last year, many transit passengers are visiting historical and touristic centers of Istanbul instead of waiting for transit time at Ataturk Airport Hotel İsanbul.
HAVE A ROAD WITH 20 HOURS OF TERMINAL CONNECTION
THY has been active since 1st of March for the introduction of Istanbul, the increase in the number of passengers, the fact that Istanbul is a global transfer center, and the free stay project (stopever) in order to contribute to the country's tourism. The project was initially offered to passengers traveling to the United States, the United Kingdom, Ireland and EU countries originating in Pakistan and having more than 20 hours of connection in Istanbul.
FREE ACCOMMODATION IN 4 OR 5 STAR HOTEL ACCOMMODATED BY TICKET CLASS
The economy class passengers who are starting to benefit from the free stay service called "Stopover" can stay overnight in a four star hotel in Sultanahmet and Taksim areas of Istanbul with the hotel arranged by THY Karachi office in the purchase. Business Class passengers had two nights free accommodation in a five star hotel under the "stopover" application.
For the application, a hotel tracking system was also established in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad offices. Employees were also trained on the project. The scope of the "stopover" project will be further expanded after the successful completion of the pilot application. THY pilot application will also be a positive reflection on the hotels and shopping places in Istanbul.
