The Turkish-German airline SunExpress has decided to expand its U.K. operations, announcing the launch of a new route between Gatwick Airport and Antalya from March. A joint venture between Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines has established the market for the airline and has been an important part of the route network for several years with flights from London-Luton mainly catering for visiting friends and relatives.
Now the airline has planned to extend its offer for British holidaymakers. Starting March 28, 2021 SunExpress will launch three weekly flights between London Gatwick and Antalya, offering passengers an ideal destination for the Easter holiday period. The route will also be served daily from May 28. The airline is also set to launch another new flight from Manchester to Antalya on March 26, 2021.
The route will be served twice per week before passengers will have a choice of four weekly connections starting May 30. Peter Glade, Chief Commercial Officer, SunExpress said in a statement that after a year of staying at home, the people of Britain deserve a sunny holiday. He mentioned that the new services to Antalya will allow the British people to arrive at their well-deserved holiday destination, in a fast and relaxed manner, and experience the unique SunExpress service for a competitive price.
