This service brings the total number of destinations the airline flies to in Africa to 42, as it keeps its status as the carrier that flies to more countries and international destinations than any other airline by serving its services to 114 countries across Europe, Russia, Central Asia, Far East Asia, the Middle East, Africa, North and South America.

The inaugural flight from Istanbul got a water cannon salute at Mahe International airport at a ceremony graced by Mr. Ahmet Olmuştur, Chief Marketing Officer of Turkish Airlines; Mr. Alain St. Ange, Minister for Tourism and Culture of the Republic of Seychelles; and Mr. Joel Morgan, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Transport of the Republic of Seychelles, in the presence of diplomatic, protocol and media representatives as well as Turkish Airlines’ officials.

Mr. Olmuştur said; “It does not take long to realize why Seychelles has such a stellar reputation worldwide and much like Turkish Airlines, it goes out of its way to put a stamp on quality in everything that it provides as a destination. It is therefore a great honor for us to add this great destination to our network, which currently has the biggest number of destinations than any other airline globally.”
