Turkish extends complimentary stopover service


Turkish Airlines has extended its ‘Stopover’ service to include passengers from South Africa who are connecting in Istanbul to a wide range of selected destinations.

Passengers who have more than 20 hours of connection time in Istanbul are in line to receive complimentary accommodation.

Qualifying passengers will receive an accommodation voucher from Turkish Airlines’ authorised staff after booking their flight.

Economy class passengers will receive a one-night stay at a four-star hotel, and business class passengers a two-night stay at a five-star hotel in Sultanahmet and Taksim.

The ‘Stopover’ service was previously offered to passengers departing from Pakistan, Kazakhstan and Australia, and is now being expanded to travellers from South Africa and other departure points.
