It’s one of the fastest-growing airlines in aviation history; it has developed dramatically over the last decade appealing to both the corporate and leisure market. The airline has one of the largest networks with more than 310 destinations across the world and access to over 125 countries via its main hub in Istanbul.

With its young, modern fleet and vast network, Turkish Airlines will hold its title of flying to more countries than any other airline for the foreseeable future.
Turkish Airlines is also now based at the new Istanbul Airport, which opened in October 2018 and is already the world’s third-largest airport. Upon completion, it is set to become the largest airport in the world with six runways and a total passenger capacity of 200 million passengers per year—almost twice that of the current largest airport.
Turkish Airlines also offer great fares to students in the UK such as discounted fares, especially within the UK market.
Birmingham Airport is the UK’s third-largest airport outside London and the UK’s seventh largest overall. It handles around 13 million passengers a year and around 35 million people live within its two-hour catchment—half the population of the UK. As the Midlands’ largest airport, it serves more than 150 direct scheduled and charter routes and offers an additional 340 possible connections worldwide. Over the last 10 years, Birmingham Airport has invested more than £300 million to develop its infrastructure. Sitting in the centre of the country’s road and rail network means that it is one of the UK’s most accessible airports.
