Corendon Airlines to fly from Glasgow next summer

Turkish carrier Corendon Airlines is to start serving Antalya and Dalaman from Glasgow next summer.

The airline will make its debut in Scotland from April 2022 with twice-weekly flights to both destinations using Boeing 737-800s.

Almost 50,000 seats will be available between Scotland and Turkey for 2022.

Corendon Airlines commercial director Mine Aslan said: “We are very excited to expand our flight network with new routes. We have continued to see demand increasing to Antalya and Dalaman from the UK despite the current challenges faced by our industry.

“There are many British customers who own properties in Turkey and are looking to stay longer than a typical seven or 14-night holiday. Our new schedule will now cater for this increasing demand.

“In summer 2022, we will start our Glasgow operations offering approximately 50,000 seats to Antalya and Dalaman. Our aim in this market is to meet the increased demand for Turkey destinations in the forthcoming seasons as well as to expand to other Mediterranean destinations on the Corendon network.”

Matt Hazelwood, group commercial director for AGS Airports, which owns Aberdeen, Glasgow and Southampton airports, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer additional capacity to one of our most popular destinations at the same time as welcoming a new airline partner to Glasgow Airport.

“The new flights to Antalya offer more choice to reach resorts such as Alanya, Side or Belek, while Dalaman opens up renowned resorts such as Marmaris or the picture postcard resort of Oludeniz.”
