SunExpress sets record seat capacity on Izmir flights

SunExpress, a joint venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, has set a record high seat capacity for its İzmir flights in 2018 summer season, SunExpress CEO Jens Bischof has said. 

“As one of Europe’s leading leisure airlines, we are working hard to connect İzmir to as many important destinations as possible,” Bischof said during a meeting with members of the İzmir Industrialists and Business Association (İZSİAD) and local media outlets, according to a press release from the company on April 12.

“We have increased our international flight network from İzmir to 32, seven of which are charter flights. We offer 800 flights a week via Izmir. This year, we have increased our capacity by 13 percent and set a historic record for Izmir flights, with a capacity of more than 1.3 million seats in the 2018 summer season alone,” he added.

In 2012, SunExpress launched İzmir as a hub and within this framework it offers flights to 25 cities in Europe from 14 cities in Anatolia via İzmir.

SunExpress carried 1.3 million of the 2.4 million international passengers arriving in İzmir, the press release stated.

During his speech, Bischof also announced the launch of new weekly İzmir to Lyon flights in the 2018 summer season, starting on June 18.
