Airline opens more Copenhagen-Istanbul flights

Business appears to be booming between the two cities
AtlasGlobal has launched a new route between Istanbul and Copenhagen. The Istanbul-based Turkish airline opened the new route on June 24. The new service takes the number of flights from CPH to Istanbul to close to 200 in July alone.
“Turkey is a preferred holiday destination for Danish holidaymakers,” said Peter Krogsgaard, Copenhagen Airport’s chief commercial officer. “The country offers a rich history and culture along with great weather and fantastic beaches. This is an excellent match that draws a lot of Danish holidaymakers, and now they will have many more flights to choose from.”
A total of 425,922 people travelled from Copenhagen Airport to Turkey in 2015, 56% of whom flew to one of Istanbul’s two airports.
AtlasGlobal will deploy an Airbus A320 on the new route. It has seat capacity for 164 passengers, 156 in economy and eight in business class. Flights will be daily, at least during summer.
Both major airports in the Turkish metropolis have non-stop daily services to Copenhagen. AtlasGlobal flies to Istanbul-Ataturk, which has onward flights to domestic destinations such as Izmir, Adana, Antalya, Kayseri, Trabzon and Gaziantep.
The four airlines flying between Copenhagen and Istanbul operated a total of 142 flights in May. In July, there will be 197 flights, a 38.7% increase.
