Corendon Airlines is hiking summer 2022 capacity from the UK to Mediterranean holiday destinations.

More than 500,000 seats are being added to Turkey, Rhodes and Crete.

The summer 2022 UK schedule now totals 41 flights on 14 different routes.

The airline has added regional flights from Glasgow, Newcastle and Birmingham to Antalya and Dalaman in addition to Gatwick and Manchester.

The expanded schedule includes daily flights between Gatwick and Antalya.

Corendon, which has a fleet of 24 Boeing 737s, recently re-launched its schedule for this summer, including a twice-weekly service from Gatwick to Gaziantep in Turkey.

A spokesperson said: “Following relatively strong demand for summer 2021 flights to Antalya and feedback from the trade, we are pleased to announce this new daily service for summer 2022.

We have continued to see demand increasing to Antalya and Dalaman, from the UK, despite the current challenges faced by our industry.

“For summer 2022, Corendon Airlines will base an aircraft at Dalaman airport, which has allowed us to increase our summer 2022 programme substantially.”
