Turkish Airlines (TK) Cheapest Flight Deals

Where in the world do you want to go? Chances are, this 4th largest carrier in the world can take you there. A member of the Star Alliance since 2008 only broadens your options and they are the airline that serves over 170 destinations around the world. This airline is a true Turkish delight (that’s a dessert by the way).

Turkish Airlines won the Skytrax awards for Europe's Best Airline, Southern Europe's Best Airline, and the World's Best Premium Economy Class Airline Seat for three consecutive years in 2011, 2012 and 2013. It has retained its status as the top European airline in 2014 and 2015, thereby holding the title for five years in a row. This is quite the turnaround for an airline that was struggling throughout the 1970’s, 80’s and even into the 90’s. They have also acquired sponsorships of several prominent futbol teams (name drop FC Barcelona here) and celebrities such as Kobe Bryant.

Turkish Airlines was founded in 1933 and its hubs are in Istanbul Ataturk Airport (IST), Esenboga International Airport (ESB), and Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (SAW). Their frequent flyer program is Miles&Smiles (doesn’t that make you smile? If it doesn’t, that’s unfortunate). They are headquartered in Istanbul, Turkey and have just over 18,000 employees.
