And here's the advert:
25 March 2012. Turkish Airlines introduces 3 extra weekly flights between Manchester & Istanbul, plus an additional 1 from 28 May 2012, for the summer season. The flights will be operated using Boeing 737-800s. "It’s great to see an airline making bigger commitments to the airport and the north west region, which proves the demand is there. Increasing their services will give our passengers more choice to travel to not only Istanbul but to more than 100 onward destinations." said Manchester Airport's chief operating officer, Andrew Harrison. Turkish Airlines will also be deploying Boeing 737-900ER aircraft on selected days in the Summer 2012 season.
15 March 2010. Don't be surprised if you see Turkish Airline's logo on display in Old Trafford - they are now a sponsor of the Manchester United Football Team, and will fly the team to their venues for 3.5 years. In the skies watch out for a red, black & white Boeing 737-800. Earlier in 2010 THY also set up a sponsorship deal with FC Barcelona.
