We Successfully Arranged Charter Flights to Turkey

On the 3rd of June, Right Holidays team went to the airport to see off 189 passengers that were scheduled to fly to Adana from London Stansted Airport. The SunExpress flight - that landed in Adana Şakirpaşa Airport at 19:50 - was the first direct Adana flight during these unprecedented times. 

We have been working hard to ensure the flight could take place as many others have been cancelled by airlines. We contacted officials from the Ministry of Health, Foreign Affairs and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation to receive the flight permits. We are happy to announce that we have been successful. 

Sevgi Sarıtaş and Arif Paşa from our team accompanied the passengers and helped them with the check-in process. 

Arif Paşa commented, “For the past month and a half, we worked very hard and finally managed to arrange the Adana flight from London Stansted on the 3rd of June. We would like to thank everyone who contributed to making this flight a success and we’d like to thank our friends at other travel agencies. We are proud to have helped expats fly to their homes”. 

The full capacity flight was organised after dedicated efforts of the Right Holidays team, and some passengers who were stranded in the UK were incredibly thankful. 

One said, “I’ve been trying for the past 3 months, we bought a ticket but the flight got cancelled. They said, ‘okay now you’ll be flying’ but it didn’t happen. You are our luck. Especially for my mom. Because my dad is still in Turkey and she is here. Thank you so much”.

4 More Flights Are Scheduled between 7 - 10 June 

We continue to speak to the officials and expect 4 more permits for flights between 7 - 10 June. 

Arif Paşa said, “After the success of the Adana flight, we are confident that 4 more planned flights will be permitted. These flights are scheduled between 7 - 10 June, two of them are to Gaziantep, one to İzmir and another one to Kayseri. We are waiting for the permits and continue to add names to our list of passengers. Once we receive the permits, we will let our passengers know and we will make sure that they travel to Turkey”. 

Paşa added that the list of passengers for İzmir had been filled but that there were still a few spaces on flights to Gaziantep and Kayseri. We are calling all customers who would like to fly to Turkey to add their names on our lists. Currently, there are 700-800 people scheduled to fly. 

Turkey does not enforce a 14-day quarantine at the moment, so passengers can freely enter the country and reunite with their families.
