BUSINESS CLASS ON BOARD OF TURKISH AIRLINES

In Istanbul, where a delegation of journalists went to meet with the leaders of Turkish Airlines on the occasion of its recognition as the best airline in Europe, we flew in business class on a carrier plane. To fly them is a pleasure: the level of service is simply amazing. After registering at Vnukovo airport for a flight to Antalya, through which we flew to the largest city in Turkey, we were taken to the lounge area – the first for a company abroad. Spacious, elegant and, most importantly, with comfortable furniture, it has a comfortable rest. There is a rich library, personal TVs with headphones, high-speed Internet connection, and the restaurant has a rich buffet and drinks for every taste. And if there is no time for rest, you can concentrate on business – in a special room for work, equipped with computers, or in a separate conference room where you can hold talks.

In addition to spacious armchairs (which, by the way, are fully folded) and surprise treats (for example, traditional Turkish Turkish delight and chocolate), Turkish Airlines airplanes serve a wide range of excellent drinks and dishes prepared by a world-class chef.

In the lounge area at Antalya Airport, none of the journalists were surprised by the massage chairs. Despite the fact that the flight from Antalya to Istanbul takes only an hour and a half, the service on board was not inferior to business class service on international routes.

In Istanbul, at the headquarters of Turkish Airlines, we were kindly met by the Deputy Director of Sales and Marketing in the USA and Northern Europe Mustafa Dogan and the head of the company’s representative office in Russia, Mefail Deribash. On that day, their faces shone with pride, because the British consulting company Skytrax for the fifth time in a row recognized Turkish Airlines as the best airline in Europe. In addition, in 2015, the carrier entered the top four world leaders in civil aviation.

Mustafa Dogan made a presentation for us, during which he noted the particular importance of the Russian market for the company in the light of the development of economic and cultural relations between Russia and Turkey. Dogan stressed that Turkey’s interest in the best way demonstrates the geography of flights in Russia: ten cities and an average of 70 regular flights a week.

Before the flight from Istanbul to Moscow, we wanted to linger a bit in the lounge area of ​​Turkish Airlines at Ataturk Airport. What we have not found on three thousand square meters! This is a chic restaurant, a library, a billiards club, a business center equipped with the latest technology, and even a special simulator for the game of golf. And also fresh press from all over the world, pleasant music and amazing atmosphere. However, the positive impressions did not end there. On board the plane that drove us home, we again fully felt what true comfort and top class service is, of course, the Turkish Airlines business class.
