Turkish Airlines, the best airline in Europe for the last five years*, recorded a positive growth of 6.1 per cent in passenger traffic from the UAE in H1 2015, compared to the same period in the previous year.
To celebrate the achievement, Turkish Airlines hosted the Annual Travel Agencies Appreciation Awards and gala dinner event to honour travel agents in Dubai. The event, held at the Raffles Hotel Dubai, recognised partners for their continual support and contribution to driving not only the growth in passenger traffic from the Emirate, but also contributing to the 7.8 per cent total passenger growth in GCC markets compared to the previous year.
We are delighted to honour the travel industry for their continual support and contribution to the airline’s robust expansion in the Emirate.

He added: “Our position as ‘Europe’s Best Airline,’ increasing connectivity, enhanced services and the rising popularity of Turkey as a holiday and business destination continue to attract a growing number of travellers from Dubai. We wouldn’t be reporting such impressive growth without the support of our partners.”
Plaques of appreciation were awarded to the top 20 best performing agents for Turkish Airlines.
