Flying the Skies with Turkish Airlines

Offering direct daily flights from both Jakarta and Bali to Istanbul, Turkey, Turkish Airlines opens up the world for travellers from Indonesia.

Already flying to 126 countries, more than any other airline in the world, and with a continually growing fleet, deepening reach into existing markets and the opening up of new markets, Turkish Airlines makes the world accessible to travellers around the globe and continues on its mission to reach all corners of the world.

On 17 July 2019, the Istanbul-based airline flew its inaugural flight into Bali, its second Indonesian destination, which was greeted with great fanfare and in true Balinese style with traditional dances and blessings. The daily flights are served by one of the fleet’s new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and provide its renowned comfort and facilities.

Warm, friendly service, excellent facilities, comfortable planes and a vast network of destinations have all helped the airline to win awards, including Skytrax’ top European airline for six consecutive years, as well as for on-board dining and in-flight entertainment. Passengers are spoiled for choice with excellent food and an extensive range of movies, games and music, which can be enjoyed with high quality headphones designed to reduce external noise while providing excellent sound quality and comfort.

Business class passengers benefit from speedy check in at dedicated check-in counters, priority baggage handling and access to the luxurious airport lounges with their exemplary facilities, which in Lounge Istanbul include massage services, cinema, video games, media screens, a golf simulator and dishes that won the Skytrax Best Business Class Lounge Dining award.

Once on board, the luxury continues with a spacious cabin, welcome drinks before take-off, attentive service and maximum comfort with features such as fully lie-flat seats that open into a 193cm bed with in-chair massage controlled by intuitive controls, charging ports and the ability to screen your own private area. Turkish Airlines business class customers also enjoy free and fast Wi-Fi while on board.

Dining is a treat with the fleet’s Flying Chefs preparing award-winning, seasonal dishes made from the freshest ingredients, elegantly served on stylish porcelain tableware. The ever-changing menu offers a selection of classic Turkish choices, as well as international favourites and is sure to satisfy global gourmands whatever the mealtime.

Constantly striving to provide excellence to its passengers, Turkish Airlines is adding more new generation aircraft to its ever-expanding routes and has recently moved to the brand-new Istanbul Airport in Turkey. Istanbul is not only an exciting destination in its own right, it is an ideal hub for Turkish Airlines’ strategic network around the globe, which serves key cities across Europe, Africa, North and South America, Central Asia and the Middle East. Turkish Airlines flies to 316 destinations, of which 50 are domestic and 266 international, as well as being a member of Star Alliance, making the possibilities for global travel endless.
