Turkish Airlines will launch its new Dreamliner on the Cape Town route from March 9.

“The new aircraft will bring with it a next-level flying experience, including the latest in-flight entertainment system and a new business class product,” says Kenan Ince, Cape Town General Manager for the airline.

“This plane is a game changer in passenger service levels in all classes in terms of comfort, noise reduction, access, ambience and entertainment.”

For those using Istanbul as a connection, Turkish Airlines provides complimentary inducements for an extended stopover. “We’re promoting our popular added-value offerings of Free Stopover (free hotel accommodation for passengers travelling via Istanbul to an international destination) and TourIstanbul, a free guided tour of Istanbul for passengers connecting through Istanbul to an international destination.”
