:: Young travelers “Get their Wings” as Turkish Airlines marks third daily JFK-Istanbul flight
With the holidays upon us, kids at New York’s JFK Airport received an early gift from Turkish Airlines to help celebrate the addition of a third daily flight to Istanbul. Little ones boarding the commemorative third flight on Memorial Day received their very own model plane to take home with them as a keepsake.
Two lucky passengers got quite a surprise when they were automatically upgraded to Business Class. The first person received an upgrade because her birthday falls closest to May 28th (May 27th) and the second person was awarded the upgrade for being first to check in.
With the new addition of a third daily flight from JFK to Istanbul travelers will have more flexibility when planning their trips. The flight schedule – which jumps from 14 to 21 flights per week just in time for the summer travel season – lasts through September 16, 2012.
