Turkish Airlines will increase its capacity between Istanbul and Panama
Turkish Airlines plans to increase the number of seats on its flights between Istanbul and Tocumen in Panama.
Launched about two months ago, this direct flight has been operated since last October by Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners which can accommodate 300 passengers, so the Turkish air carrier has decided to replace it with a device with a capacity larger seats. It is an A350-900 type aircraft which adopts a 350-seat configuration.
By operating this new aircraft to ensure its services to the Panamanian destination, Turkish Airlines will be able to offer 4,200 seats on its fourteen scheduled routes over the coming months, compared to 3,900 seats offered on its flights served last month.
The new aircraft will be used to provide the frequencies scheduled by the Turkish company between its hub in Istanbul (IST) and Panama-Tacumen (PTY) from March 2023.
Panama-Tacoumen airport currently benefits from three to four weekly rotations provided by Turkish Airlines. This service is in addition to other routes served by the Asian airline in Latin America, such as Bogota in Colombia and Mexico City, which both benefit from two daily flights.
