Bağlıkaya said “The operational skills and capacity of Corendon Airlines and its understanding to provide good services result in the fact that it has become a fast growing brand in Europe. That was the reason for us to spread our cooperation over a longer period of time. For 90% of all our bookings destined for Turkey we intend to use Corendon Airlines as mother-aircompany. As a Turkish origined touroperator we will achieve a big share of our turnover in cooperation with an airline company that flies under the Turkish flag and by doning so, we are proud that the foreign currency earned abroad will stay in our country.”.
