AA PhotoTurkish Airlines has inaugurated flights to San Francisco, the national flag carrier said in a statement.
It is the airline’s second Californian destination, and its 11th in the Americas. The airline already has services to Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Toronto, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, Boston and Montreal.
The San Francisco flight will operate five times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays in both directions.
