Korea, Turkey Agree on Multiple Designation of Airlines, Increase of Flights
Korean and Turkish aviation authorities have agreed to increase weekly flights between Seoul and Istanbul to seven times a week from the present four times.

The two sides also decided to introduce the multiple designations of airlines.

The decision to that effect was made during the bilateral aviation talks held in Istanbul, Turkey on Oct. 1, 2009.

The delegations were headed by Kim, Sang-do for Korea and Ali Ariduru for Turkey.

Currently, Korea-Turkey route is operated by one airline only and run four times a week, which caused poor service and lack of air tickets even at peak seasons.

Multiple designations of airlines and increasing weekly flights came after 13 years since the first air talk held in 1996.

The new move is expected to bring convenience for passengers such as diverse flight schedules and reduced airfares, etc.
Turkey is becoming one of the best tourist destinations due to its geographical and symbolic location between Europe and Asia, and in particular, Istanbul is an enchanting tourist place as it has the relic of the ancient East Rome as well as both Christian and Islam cultures .

The Ministry said that the increased weekly flights will help people go on pilgrimage or travel to Turkey without difficulty.
