Record passenger growth for THY in the Middle East

Turkish Airlines recorded a growth in passenger traffic of 43% in Riyadh during 2012 compared to 2011.
The six-city network of Turkish Airlines in Saudi Arabia reported a doubling of passenger numbers from the Kingdom since 2010 reaching 750.000.
Ersen Engin, General Manager for Turkish Airlines in Riyadh, said: “The robust growth in passenger numbers from Riyadh underlines the emergence of Turkish Airlines as a popular carrier for residents in the city, as well as the rising importance of Turkey as a business and leisure destination for the Kingdom.
“With Riyadh’s robust passenger increase of 40 percent year on year, and increased demand from both business and leisure travellers to Turkey and beyond destinations, we are confident that with our award winning inflight service and competitive pricing the upward trend will continue.”
He added: “We are delighted to celebrate the achievement of our travel agencies that have contributed to the rapid expansion of Turkish Airlines network in the region, and to the airline’s 220 destination network – the largest country network in the world.”
Turkish Airlines currently operates flight to 32 destinations in the Middle East Region, with 14 weekly flights from Riyadh. The airline plans to add further routes in both the Kingdom and the Middle East Region.
