Free inflight Wi-Fi to U.S. bound passengers from Istanbul who hand in their tablets or laptops at the boarding gate
Dubai, UAE; 9 April 2017: Turkish Airlines, Europe's Best Airline for six consecutive years according to recent Skytrax results, presents adjustments in order to further ensure a pleasant travel to the United States. Turkish Airlines now extends Business Class free on-board internet services to economy passengers in exchange for their tablets or laptops while boarding their flights to the United States.
For passengers that prefer not to stow their electronic devices in checked-in baggage during the flight, Turkish Airlines offers a special service that gives travellers to the United States and United Kingdom a safe and secure method of carrying their electronics in a special area in the cargo hold of the airplane. The devices may be used at the gate until boarding.
By continuously aiming to increase the passenger satisfaction, Turkish Airlines additionally offers high quality headphones to economy class passengers on long-haul flights. This new service will be effective immediately in all U.S. flights, and for all other long-haul flights of Turkish Airlines as from May 2017. The passengers will feel more comfortable with this high quality headset, specially designed for long flight hours.
Turkish Airlines continuously improves its in-flight entertainment system – amongst other services – in order to make its passengers feel special throughout the entire flight. The comfortable headphones with much higher sound quality will allow the passengers to uninterruptedly enjoy the airline's award-winning inflight entertainment system, titled “Planet”, which delivers thousands of hours of music and film experience.
