Turkish Airlines has announced it will serve Denver with its Airbus A350s from June 11, thus becoming its 14th route to the United States.

Turkish Airlines is committed to expanding its route network with the announcement of its 14th route towards the United States amid growing demand.

The airline has unveiled plans to serve Denver International Airport (DEN) this summer, commencing on June 11, 2024, from Istanbul Airport (IST).

Service is expected to massively enhance Denver’s global network with this overtaking previous records set by other airlines as the new longest flight.

Labelled as historic, the airline will also become the 26th to serve Denver. Flights are initially slated to operate thrice weekly, and the Airbus A350-900 has been selected.

Interestingly, the airline will quickly boost flights to Denver less than one month after launch on July 9, 2024, with a fourth weekly flight to be added.

The three weekly flights are set to operate on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with the fourth week to be added on Sundays.

This new service to Istanbul, a dynamic city where east meets west, presents a tremendous opportunity for increased collaboration and exchange between our regions. Today’s announcement is a testament to DEN’s ongoing ambitious efforts to secure new airlines and global destinations that help bring the world closer to home.

Turkish Airlines says flights will depart Denver in 1945, with a 1615 arrival in Istanbul the following day. The returning flights are expected to leave Istanbul at 1355, with a touchdown in Denver at 1740.

According to a new analysis, the Turkish Airlines service is expected to have an economic impact of more than USD 54 million. Additionally, this will create 350 new jobs across Colorado, which should generate USD 21 million in wages.

Turkish Airlines’ Star Alliance connection means it has a significant relationship with several carriers already operating out of Denver, meaning onward connectivity can be relatively simple.

A fresh expansion to the United States is part of the airline’s continued efforts to become a global powerhouse in the travel world. To propel it forward, new aircraft, new routes, and a massive expansion of its employee base are planned.

The airline has seen the growth and development of airlines in the Middle East and believes it can achieve similar success using Turkey’s geographical positioning as a key base to push forward.
