Turkish Airlines, Europe’s best airline*, recognised its partners in Kuwait for their contribution to 2.11 per cent increase in passenger traffic in 2014 compared to the previous year, by bringing them together for a celebration at the Kuwait Equestrian Club in Kuwait City.
Turkish Airlines hosted the day-out event on 13 February to recognise travel agents in Kuwait for their continual support and contribution to driving the strong growth in passenger numbers from Kuwait across the airline’s 264 destinations network.
Sami Aydogan, General Manager for Turkish Airlines in Kuwait, said: “We appreciate Kuwait’s travel industry for their steadfast role in contributing to the airline’s robust expansion in the country which led to frequencies being doubled from Kuwait City in 2014.”
He added: “Our position as ‘Europe’s Best Airline,’ increasing connectivity, enhanced services and the rising popularity of Turkey as a holiday and business destination continue to attract a growing number of travellers from Kuwait. Our impressive growth is indeed led by the support of our partners.”
The Turkish-themed picnic day offered all participants and their family the opportunity to enjoy activities including football, basketball, volleyball, tennis, squash, bowling, billiard and horse riding. In addition, all families were offered the traditional Turkish food including Turkish döner kebab (shawurma) and turkish köfte (meatball) all prepared by Turkish chefs.
Building on the recent growth achieved by Turkish Airlines in terms of passenger traffic there are now three flights daily from Kuwait City to Istanbul connecting Kuwaitis to more countries than any other airline with 264 destinations across 219 countries.
