Written by on 31st March 2023

Newcastle International Airport has welcomed a brand new airline that will offer flights to Turkey next month.

SunExpress will travel to several destinations across Turkey, including Adana, Trabzon and Antalya.

The Airline, which was named the World’s Best Leisure Airline by the prestigious World Airline Awards 2022, will fly from Newcastle to Turkey three times a week.

Chris Ion, Aviation Development Manager at Newcastle International Airport, said: “It is great to welcome SunExpress to Newcastle International Airport. Antalya is one of the most popular and vibrant holiday destinations in the Mediterranean, offering year-round sunshine, golden beaches, excellent golf courses and hotels.

“The addition of SunExpress will offer more choice to passengers looking to take a well-earned holiday to Turkey this summer. We look forward to working with the airline to develop their services from Newcastle.”

Along with Turkey, SunExpress will also offer flights to Dubai and Beirut from Newcastle International Airport.

Peter Glade, SunExpress Commercial Director, said: “With the best leisure airline in the world, who wouldn’t want to get on that flight to Antalya? Our vibrant and diverse home city offers everything that makes for a successful holiday: great hospitality, crystal-clear water, beautiful beaches, excellent cuisine, and unbeatable value for money. With our new route from Newcastle to Antalya and expanded services to operate beyond summer, we continue to increase our footprint further in the UK.”

Flights will depart twice a week on Tuesdays and Saturdays, increasing to three throughout summer, with an additional Thursday departure added from May 2023.

Flights start at £78.99 for a one-way ticket to Turkey, with passengers able to bring at least 20kg of hold baggage as standard. The average price of a ticket to Antalya from Newcastle is £80, which SunExpress charges slightly below.
