In a bid to expand interconnectivity, Turkish Airlines has opened a new non-stop service from Istanbul (IST) to Dallas-Fort-Worth (DFW). Starting September 24, flights will be operated four times per week using a 300-seat Boeing 787-9 aircraft.
The new route positions Turkey’s national carrier for increased connectivity with the U.S., as well as connects two of Texas’ most populous cities and oil and gas capitals: Dallas and Houston. For the African continent, which frequently utilizes Istanbul as a stopover to North America, this will translate to more direct access to the American energy industry.
The new route will compete with existing non-stop flights offered by Emirates, Qatar Airways and British Airways.
DFW International Airport serves as a domestic and global transit hub, and for three consecutive months in 2020, registered the most takeoffs and landings globally.
