A jet from Turkish Airlines lands at DEN.

Nonstop flights to Istanbul began June 11, 2024

 DENVER – June 12, 2024 – Turkish Airlines inaugurated service between Denver International Airport (DEN) and Istanbul Airport (IST) yesterday afternoon. This new service expands DEN’s international network to reach 31 nonstop destinations in 17 countries around the world, the most in DEN history.

“This is an incredible day for Denver,” said Mayor Mike Johnston. “Today’s inaugural direct flight to Istanbul connects Denver to the world. Thanks to this new flight, we are creating jobs and economic growth right here in Denver, while expanding opportunities for Denver businesses not just in Turkey, but in places around the globe that are served by Turkish Airlines.

The inbound flight from Istanbul included a delegation from Turkey led by Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, Turkish Airlines Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, other senior members of Turkish Airlines’ executive leadership team and Istanbul-based media. The delegation will spend two days in Denver and Colorado’s Front Range. The inaugural flight was operated with a Boeing 777-300 aircraft.

“Informed by industry data that pointed to increasing passenger demand between our two cities, securing this new partnership is integral to DEN’s Vision 100 goal of expanding our global reach,” said DEN CEO Phil Washington. “We thank Turkish Airlines for their investment in Denver and look forward to the trade, travel and tourism between our two regions flourishing.”

Turkish Airlines is the 26th airline to serve DEN. Flights are scheduled to initially operate three days per week, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays onboard an Airbus A350-900 aircraft. A fourth frequency, on Sundays, will be added on July 9, 2024. At 6,130 miles, Turkish Airlines’ Denver-Istanbul flight is the longest flight operated from DEN, nearly 400 miles longer than the flight between Denver and Tokyo’s Narita International Airport.

According to DEN analysis, the new Turkish Airlines service to Istanbul is estimated to produce more than $54 million in annual economic impact to Colorado’s economy and support the creation of approximately 350 new jobs across the state, generating more than $21 million in additional wages.

Denver is the 14th U.S. destination served by Turkish Airlines. This continued expansion reflects the airline’s long-term strategy to connect travelers from North America to Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Currently Turkish Airlines serves more destinations than any other airline in the world from its Istanbul hub.  Turkish Airlines becomes the fifth member of the Star Alliance to serve Denver, joining Air Canada, Copa, Lufthansa and United.
