Turkish Airlines to increase flights to Bangladesh
Turkish Airlines will operate direct flights on Dhaka-Istanbul route for seven days a week, up from four days from June, as Bangladeshi passengers are choosing the airlines for its cheap airfare.
The number of Bangladeshi passengers of Turkish airlines increased in recent times as the airlines is connected to 190 destinations from Istanbul, said outgoing Turkish Ambassador M Vakur Erkul when he made a farewell call on President Zillur Rahman at Bangabhaban in the capital recently.
The president hoped Turkish investors would come in Bangladesh in the coming days which will further help increase trade relations between the two countries.
Rahman sought Turkish assistance in the development of Bangladesh. “It's our time to give support to you as relations between Turkey and Bangladesh has been rooted in history since the eighth century,” said the envoy.
