ISTANBUL, April 10, 2018

This year, Turkish Airlines marks its 10th anniversary of joining the Star Alliance network, established in 1997 as the first global airline alliance to offer worldwide reach, recognition and seamless service to the international travellers.
The flag carrier of Turkey celebrated its membership anniversary at Turkish Airlines Headquarters with the participation of Turkish Airlines chairman of the Board and the executive committee, M. İlker Aycı, and Star Alliance CEO, Jeffrey Goh.
“Turkish Airlines will continue to be a valuable partner for Star Alliance and its members; as an important element for our common strategy that will enable the Alliance to move forward with solid footprints. We’re sure that we will have more constructive partnerships within this big family, by working towards the desired goal of making further successes in the forthcoming period,” said Aycı.
“It is a great pleasure for me to be present at this special event in Istanbul today. In the last 10 years, Turkish Airlines has played an important role in developing Star Alliance’s global network, especially improving access to Turkey, Central Asia and the Middle East. As Star Alliance transitions into its third decade, we look forward to continued close cooperation and support from Turkish Airlines, as we shift the Alliance’s focus to improving the customer journey by leveraging digital technology.” said Jeffrey Goh, Star Alliance CEO.
Turkish Airlines was welcomed as the 20th Star Alliance member airline in April 2008. When Turkish Airlines joined Star Alliance network in 2008, it was adding 31 new destinations to the Star Alliance network. But today the carrier makes Star Alliance presence available at 72 unique destinations around the world. - TradeArabia News Service
