The airline that was voted Europe's best airline for the third straight year, Turkish Airlines is now flying into it's sixth gateway city in the United States.

The new city is Boston.

With the addition of Boston, Turkish Airlines now flies to 249 destinations in 106 countries around the world. That is more countries than any other airline in the world.

Turkish Airlines thinks Boston, with it's history and being a center of business, will be an important city to serve.

This makes travel more convenient for business and leisure travelers in Boston and the surrounding areas. Istanbul has become a more popular destination for Americans.

The inaugural Airbus 330 flight this week, from Istanbul landed in Boston Monday evening at 4:40 p.m. Then came the ceremony. Turkish Airlines loves to go all out when a new city is added, and it was no exception in Boston. There was a ribbon cutting, press conference, traditional Turkish dancing along with food and refreshments. Of course they were served by the airline's famous "Flying Chefs."

Those in attendance included Ahmet Bolat, Chief Investment and Technology Officer at Turkish Airlines and Thomas P. Glynn, CEO of Massachusetts Port Authority.

The flight will be a little over 10 hours and will be offered five days per week.
