Turkish Airlines has introduced another program for its business class passengers, inviting transiting travellers to get to experience the very best of Istanbul. The Istanbul Bosphorus Experience is a new purchasable program, specially for its Business Class passengers who have a transfer time of seven or more hours in Istanbul.
“We always strive to offer our passengers the best flight experience possible – on board and on the ground. With the addition of the Istanbul Bosphorus Experience, we continue to improve our wide range of activities and services including our worldwide known “Turkish Airlines Lounge Istanbul”, that earned the top spot in the category World’s Best Business Class Lounge within the Skytrax World Airline Awards 2017,” said Mr. Ahmet Olmuştur, Chief Marketing Officer of Turkish Airlines.
“These offerings already transform the layover into a special experience. Passengers can now discover and enjoy the cultural facets of Istanbul at first hand. Besides further diversifying our unmatched offerings to our passengers by launching this service, we can also indirectly contribute to the Turkish tourism economy by this way.”
Passengers will be welcomed by a guide, who will accompany them all the way from arrival to boarding, through passport control and all the way onto the the boat. After departing the airport on luxury transfers, passengers will visit the marinas of Eminönü or Karaköy, two prominent symbols of Istanbul.
During the private cruise of the Bosphorus, crew will serve drinks and snacks to the onboard guests, who can tweet and instagram to their hearts desire with the addition of complimentary WiFi. After the cruise tour, an array of Ottoman Cuisine (either breakfast, lunch or dinner) will be offered to passengers, at the historical Çırağan Palace Kempinski Hotel, located at the Bosphorus.
After the Çırağan Palace Kempinski visit, the passengers will be taken to their departure terminal, in company with the guide again. Eligible Turkish Airlines Business Class passengers can make their own reservations with special offers through bosphorus.turkishairlines.com/ by using their booking confirmation.
