The Turkish Airlines Sales Festival is an opportunity for families to purchase their Christmas holiday tickets early and save hundreds of dollars.
It is also an opportunity for anyone who will travel before December 31, 2018 to book their tickets at a cheap price now.

Mr. Yerli added that: “Turkish Airlines will continue to offer the best of service to our passengers in Ghana”.
Support for African Air Expo
Istanbul-based Turkish Airlines is also supporting the maiden African Air Expo, scheduled to take place from October 24-26, 2017 in Accra, with an amount of US$15,000 (GH¢65,000).
The contribution of the airline is to ensure that Ghana holds the well-advertised event successfully.
Ghana’s Ministry of Aviation and the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) are the event’s hosts, while Dubai-based 4M Events – organiser of the acclaimed Abu Dhabi Air Expo – is the event organiser.
The event is to serve as an ideal medium for exchange of aviation-related know-how, fostering closer collaboration between airlines operating in the country and their foreign counterparts who are expected to be in attendance. It will also provide an opportunity for service providers to meet potential clients.
Turkish Airlines, which has been operating in Ghana for many years, noted that the event is an opportunity to put Ghana on the world aviation map.
