Turkish Airlines Celebrates 25 Years in Ukraine
Turkish Airlines celebrated a quarter of a century in Ukraine this spring with a gala evening of festivities in Kyiv attended by friends and partners of the airline along with representatives of the diplomatic community and senior members of the Ukrainian government. Turkish Airlines first began its Ukrainian service in 1993, soon after Ukraine had gained independence. Initially the airline offered two flights to Kyiv per week. This service has now expanded to include more than 60 flights per week from six Ukrainian cities (Kyiv, Odesa, Kharkiv, Lviv, Zaporizhia and Kherson).
“Turkish Airlines is more than just a company. It represents a culture of service, a culture of quality,” commented Turkish Ambassador to Ukraine Yonet Can Tezel during the gala celebrations. “As the Ambassador of Turkey, I become proud each time my Ukrainian friends tell me why they prefer Turkish Airlines. This airline plays an important part in connecting the “new Ukraine” with the world. I know that Turkish Airlines sees Ukraine not only as a market but also as a partner to work with and to build more together. That is also Turkey’s policy toward Ukraine.”
