THY is starting Banjul (Gambia) from 30.November.18 and Lusaka (Zambia) 12.December.18.

Turkish CAA has signed a bilateral agreement with Lesotho CAA so both countries planes can fly to each other. (I am sure THY will show interest in this market soon).

Globetrotter, THY already fly to Durban, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Maputo (Nearby destinations). They will either do a stopover or codeshare with Airlink from South Africa.

At the same time, THY announced that it carried 25% more cargo in the first nine months of 2018 than in the comparable period in 2017, while increasing cargo revenue by 29%.

Don't be surprised SN26567. Domestic flights are so popular these days in Turkey they will fill in every plane they fly especially on IST-ADB flights that is very popular among the Turkish domestic pax. Also they follow the motto: The airplane will only make money if it is airborne.

To your comments about Porto flights and B737 MAX 9: more pax, more cargo, the connection with TAP Portugal to other destinations.

Turkish Airlines to start new flights to Chennai, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Amritsar and Bengaluru. It also plans to double its operations in Mumbai and Delhi.

It appears like THY sees a big market in India.

To add to the discussion:

Agree with the comment that the current bilateral agreement will not allow THY to fly more destinations in India. Needs to be revised.
