#Zambia celebrates the #TurkishAirlines inaugural flight


(Posted 14th December 2018)

Tourism to and trade with Zambia has just received a major boost as Turkish Airlines has launched flights from their hub in Istanbul to Lusaka.
The Airbus A330, configured in a three class layout of First, Business and Economy, will allow tourist visitors to Zambia reach the southern African nation from across the world with just one transit stop in Istanbul. This change of aircraft in Istanbul will be made more pleasant all round when the new airport has become fully operational early in the new year and Turkish Airlines will have moved their flight operations to the new facility, the largest airport in the world when complete.
Given that Turkish Airlines operates the most extensive international network of any airline in the world, is this seen as a massive bonus for Zambia’s tourism industry as they can now literally sell visits to the country from almost anywhere around the globe.
The Zambia Tourism Agency, led by Felix Chaila, has already stepped up their digital marketing campaigns into markets which hitherto had connectivity challenges and it is expected that #ZTA will, hand in hand with Turkish Airlines, embark on a major promotional campaign in key tourist source markets.
