• Turkish Airlines Flight Review: TK67 Singapore to Istanbul

    Longhaul Economy Class experience onboard Turkish Airlines, the Best Airline in Europe (2012) as ranked by Skytrax, onboard their state-of-the-art Airbus A330 aircraft. The entertainment system was excellent for this 11h 46min journey from Singapore to Istanbul, Turkey and meals' presentation was very nice as well. Thankfully, I had the whole row to myself so I could lay down and rest across the row, and I felt very refreshed upon arrival in Istanbul. It was quite strange for me that most announcements were pre-recorded. In my opinion, the replacing 'live' announcements with pre-recorded ones complimented the soft hues in the cabin to create a minimalist experience that is focused on maximising comfort for passengers.

    A Seattle woman flying to San Francisco to spread her husband's ashes took her 25-pound pet turkey on the flight for emotional support. Jodie Smalley says her turkey, Easter, has been there for her since her husband passed away from cancer three months ago. She had a custom diaper made for the flight, and has the necessary documents that certify the turkey is a support animal. Fellow travelers were tickled by their feathered fellow passenger and whipped out their cellphones to take pictures.

  • Turkey tourism: Authorities sink 54-meter jet to attract divers

    Turkey has sunk an Airbus jet at a resort on the Aegean Sea, hoping to boost the diving tourism in the area. The giant A300 plane was sent to the bottom of the sea on Saturday afternoon. It's now supposed to act like a reef, becoming a magnet for underwater flora and fauna. The 36-year-old aircraft was bought by the Aydin municipality from a private aviation firm for 93,000 US dollars. With Turkey's tourism revenue expected to drop by 15 billion dollars this year, authorities are hoping this new speculation will draw more attention to the region.

  • Turkey to pay for jet fuel to keep Russian tourists coming

    The government is planning new incentives for tour operators and airlines, as part of measures to boost tourism income amid problems in neighboring countries, particularly the economic crisis in Russia and the depreciation of the ruble. The related ministries held a special meeting on the issue last week, due to concerns about the drop in early bookings, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said on Feb. 3, unveiling a raft of new measures. “Tourism is one of the leading industries in Turkey, but it has been said that we might face serious problems in tourism this year,” Davutoğlu said. As part of the new measures, Turkey will grant $6,000 to all passenger planes from Russia and Iran for the next two months as a contribution into their fuel spending. “This will prevent the cancellation of flig...

Check out my Istanbul travel guide: https://goo.gl/gRsk6W ►My complete travel packing list: https://goo.gl/cX8RxV ►Camera gear I use: https://goo.gl/68UlWd Day 13: Istanbul to Rome on Turkish Airlines - On Day 13 of our Round The World Trip with Star Alliance, I first had the most insanely amazing doner kebab I’ve ever had, and then we went to the airport, enjoyed the Istanbul Turkish Airlines lounge, before flying with Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Rome. 00:53 Tarihi Karadeniz Döner - My friend Tuba from http://istanbulfood.com/ says this place serves the best doner kebab in Istanbul, and she’s no joking around. The first thing you notice when you arrive to Tarihi Karadeniz Döner is the biggest round of doner that you’ll likely ever see in your life - it’s absolutely incredibly beautiful. Many people order their doner kebab for takeaway, but they have some seating upstairs where you can grab a seat and enjoy your doner kebab immediately after its shaved off. I ordered a plate of doner kebab meat, which was absolutely awesome. The meat was shaved perfectly, so it was slightly crispy, yet juicy and flavorful all the way through. Then I also ordered the iskender kebab (İskender kebap), another Turkish food I had been longing to eat. The doner kebab meat is sliced off, then combined with tomato sauce, sheep butter, and yogurt. Finally, to wash down the doner, I also had a cup of ayran. Total price - 46 TL ($15.45) 7:19 Taxi to Istanbul Atatürk Airport - After the amazing doner kebab at Tarihi Karadeniz Döner, we then checked out of our hotel and jumped in a taxi to the airport. Price - 57 TL ($19.14) 8:13 Turkish Airlines Lounge - I haven’t been to too many lounges, but the Turkish Airlines lounge in Istanbul is one of the most amazing airline lounges in the world. There was so much good food and so many drinks and beverage options. I was honestly pretty full after devouring all that doner kebab, but I did have a chance to try Turkish manti and then I went in for some salad. 12:05 Turkish Airlines Flight from Istanbul to Rome - We then caught our flight on Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Rome. Turkish Airlines is an amazing airline with great service, and I love how there’s a chef on board. For lunch I had the kebab and it was pretty good. 16:45 Leonardo da Vinci–Fiumicino Airport - The flight from Istanbul to Rome didn’t take too long, and we arrive to Rome! 17:16 Bus to Termini Station - 5.90 EUR ($6.59) per person - To get from the airport to the center of Rome we took the bus, which dropped us off at Termini station. From Termini Station we took the Metro to Spagna station. 18:13 Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora - During out time in Rome, we stayed at Rome Marriott Grand Hotel Flora, located in a great location.

The government is planning new incentives for tour operators and airlines, as part of measures to boost tourism income amid problems in neighboring countries, particularly the economic crisis in Russia and the depreciation of the ruble. The related ministries held a special meeting on the issue last week, due to concerns about the drop in early bookings, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu said on Feb. 3, unveiling a raft of new measures. “Tourism is one of the leading industries in Turkey, but it has been said that we might face serious problems in tourism this year,” Davutoğlu said. As part of the new measures, Turkey will grant $6,000 to all passenger planes from Russia and Iran for the next two months as a contribution into their fuel spending. “This will prevent the cancellation of flights,” Davutoğlu said, adding that this would also ease the burden for tour operators. He added that the operators would also enjoy a generous credit window. Başaran Ulusoy, the head of the Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TÜRSAB), said the support would help meet the sector’s expectations in a rocky period. “Supporting planes means supporting tour operators. This will have a direct effect on consumer prices. We have also told officials that passport-free crossing from these two countries [Russia and Iran] is needed, but of course this is a mutual issue for all the countries,” Ulusoy said. However, many sector leaders have suggested that such passport-free travel is impossible due to security concerns. On Jan. 10, Hürriyet quoted Mehmet Ersoy, the chairman of tour operator Etstur, as suggesting that Turkey should compensate the costs of fuel for planes arriving from Russia in order not to lose out on this large market. Turkey receives around 4.4 million Russian tourists every year, especially in its sun-soaked southern destinations in the south. Ersoy said the government’s latest decision was “important,” adding that $6,000 amounts to around half of the fuel costs of a mid-sized plane for two months. “But the fuel issue does not solve everything. The planes and the tour operators should also take responsibility. It is mainly Turkish operators who bring Russian tourists to Turkey. But the financial support will make them totally concentrate on Turkey,” he said. The crisis in Europe may create opportunities for the Turkish tourism businesses if airlines reflect the fall in oil prices on their ticket fees, Ulusoy had earlier said at a sector event organized by daily Hürriyet on Dec. 22. Turkey’s tourism income increased by 6.2 percent to $34.3 billion in 2014, the Turkish Statistics Institute (TÜİK) announced on Jan. 30. However, income from tourism fell to $7.67 billion in the last quarter of last year, down 1.3 percent from the same period in 2013. The total number of visitors increased 5.6 percent from the previous year, to 41 million in 2014, according to the data. Around 86.6 percent of the people visiting the country were foreigners, while 13.4 percent were Turkish citizens who reside abroad.
