Accra, Oct. 10, GNA - The Turkish Airlines on Tuesday commenced the “Turkish Airlines Sales Festival,” to provide an opportunity for the public to enjoy heavily discounted tickets on Turkish Airlines and fly from Accra to over 290 destinations around the world.
Under the two-month-long Turkish Airlines Sales Festival, the Istanbul-based Airline is currently offering passengers heavily discounted fares from Accra to major destinations such as Washington for US$999; Amsterdam, US$539; Dubai, US$549; London, US$639; and New York, US$999.
The promotion is to ensure that passengers booked by November 30, 2017 for travel before December 31, 2018.
The Airline’s vast network in Africa from where it connects passengers to destinations in the Americas, Asia and Europe via Istanbul makes it the carrier of choice for passengers seeking a great travelling experience at a competitive price.
Mr Ferhat Yerli, Turkish Airlines’ General Manager, Ghana, said the Turkish Airlines Sales Festival was to afford the public the opportunity to see the world at a cheap price.
“The Festival is designed to offer Ghanaians the opportunity of booking flights to various destinations for a scant price,” he said.
Mr Yerli said “Turkish Airlines will continue to offer the best of service to our passengers in Ghana”.
He said the festival was an opportunity for families to purchase their Christmas holiday tickets early and save hundreds of dollar.
“It is also an opportunity for anyone who will travel before December 31, 2018 to book their tickets at a cheaper price now,” he added.
On the African Air Expo, the Istanbul-based Airlines is also supporting the event scheduled to take place from October 24 - 26, 2017 in Accra, with an amount of US$15,000 (GH¢65,000.00).
The contribution of the airline is to ensure that Ghana successfully holds the well-advertised event.
The Ministry of Aviation and the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) are the hosts of the event whilst Dubai-based 4M Events, organizers of the acclaimed Abu Dhabi Air Expo, are the event organizers.
The event is to serve as an ideal medium for the exchange of aviation-related know-how, fostering of closer collaboration between airlines operating in the country and their foreign counterparts who are expected to be in attendance.
It will also provide the opportunity for service providers to meet potential clients.
Turkish Airlines, which has been operating in Ghana for years, seeks to use the event as an opportunity to put Ghana on the world aviation map.
