Turkish Airlines Does Business Right

When planning a trip to Europe, it might not be a Canadian’s first instinct to choose Turkey as their jumping off point, but perhaps it should be. Turkish Airlines flies to Istanbul out of Toronto and Montreal, and the airline itself might just be Europe’s best-kept travel secret, especially if you’re travelling in business class.

On top of its stellar reviews, because Istanbul is located in a geographically prime position, Turkish Airlines flies to 115 different countries, and 285 destinations, making it the airline that flies to the most countries in the world. Istanbul then becomes what Dunlop calls a “connection gateway to Europe, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and obviously into Turkey.”

This is why Turkish Airlines recently upgraded its Lounge Istanbul, which according to Skytrax is the best business class lounge in the world.

Economy fliers also get some perks when flying with Turkish Airlines. For any connection in Istanbul that lasts longer than 6 hours, Turkish Airlines offers tours of Istanbul, no reservation or payment required.

So when planning your next trip to Europe, taking the path less travelled to Istanbul just might make all the difference in your travelling experience.
