Turkish Airlines will launch non-stop service between Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Istanbul Atatürk International Airport on May 16, 2016.

Atlanta will become Turkish Airlines’ second gateway in the Southeastern United States, following Miami International Airport. The Star Alliance member carrier is set to launch service to Miami in late October.


On July 22, 2013, Turkish Airlines firmed options on five Boeing 777-300ERs, to add to 15 already on order and 15 more already in service. Three of the latter were wet-leased, but Turkish had ordered all its other 777-300ERs directly from Boeing

Turkish Airlines will operate its Istanbul-Atlanta service with Boeing 777-300ER widebodies.

Atlanta will become Turkish Airlines’ ninth U.S. gateway overall and its 13th destination in the Americas for Turkish Airlines.

Turkish Airlines, which claims to operate to more countries and international destinations than any other airline in the world, offers one-stop connections to more than 270 destinations worldwide in 110 countries through its Istanbul hub.

According to Turkish Airlines, Istanbul Atatürk International Airport, its main hub, is a geographically attractive transfer point which offers connections to more than 140 cities within a three-hour flight.

Boeing delivered Turkish Airlines' first directly purchased 777-300ER on October 13, 2010. The carrier had previously leased five 777-300ERs from India's Jet Airways on an interim basis. The aircraft delivered in October 2010 was the first of 12 Boeing 777-300ERs ordered from Boeing from 2009 and served as the platform for introducing Turkish Airlines’ new 'Comfort Class' cabin for the first time. Turkish Airlines now has all 12 directly ordered 777-300ERs in service and must be considered a likely prospect for additional 777-300ER orders as it continues to grow

Istanbul and its predecessor cities on the same site have represented one of the world’s most important trade and transport crossroads, perhaps the single most important one, for thousands of years. It is known as the primary geographical gateway between Europe and Asia.

Turkish Airlines’ planned schedule for its Istanbul-Atlanta service calls for flight TK31 to depart Istanbul Atatürk International Airport (IATA code IST) at 1:30 p.m. daily from May 16, 2016 and reach Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) at 7:10 p.m. the same day, local time.

In the other direction, flight TK32 will leave ATL at 10:00 p.m. daily from May 16, 2016 and land at IST at 4:55 p.m. the following day, local time.
