Newark will become the 321st destination of Turkish Airlines and the 10th American gateway. The carrier first revealed plans to start a service to New York in November 2019, with a scheduled start date for May 2020, but the route was delayed as the COVID-19 crisis deepened.
Data provided by the OAG Schedules Analyzer shows that Turkish Airlines intends to maintain the number of frequencies on the existing route between Istanbul and New York John F Kennedy (JFK), despite the launch of the new service to Newark. The airline operates two daily flights between Istanbul and New York JFK, for these flights using Boeing 777-300ER and Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
Turkish Airlines will offer approximately 13.600 seats a week between Istanbul and New York.
Besides the two flights to New Yorl, Turkish Airlines also offers flights from IST to Atlanta (ALT), Boston (BOS), Chicago O'Hare (ORD), Houston George Bush (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), Miami (MIA), San Francisco (SFO) and Washington Dulles (IAD). Thus, the Turkish carrier intends to offer 48.472 seats between Turkey and the US, compared to 47.940 seats, as it offered in the same period in 2019.
