Turkish Airlines has sought Indian aviation ministry’s approval to increase its number of flights between Turkey and India. “We want to increase the number of flights, routes that we fly from India. For this, the bilateral limits need to be extended. We, through our government, are trying to negotiate with Indian aviation authorities to allow us to fly more flights,” said Adnan Aykac, general manager (northern and eastern India), Turkish Airlines, according to a Financial Express report.
The carrier has currently utilised its full allotment of air rights awarded by India, which entitles it to 14 passenger and 14 cargo flights per week which it splits between Delhi and Mumbai . The carrier is also looking to add new services to Bangalore and Hyderabad.
