SunExpress to operate weekly flights from Edinburgh to Izmir in autumn ‘23

Edinburgh Airport is continuing to enhance its 2023 offering with the announcement of a new route to Izmir with SunExpress.

The airline will operate one flight each week to the Turkish city, nicknamed the ‘Pearl of the Aegean’, between August 29 and October 24, 2023 - providing passengers the perfect opportunity to catch some sun once the Scottish summer has departed. Flights will depart Edinburgh each Tuesday on a Boeing 737.

The announcement of this new route comes as SunExpress confirms it is also expanding its frequency to Antalya to five flights each week from the Scottish capital.

Edinburgh Airport is continuing to increase its offering for 2023, with the aim of providing passengers as much choice as possible when planning their travels.

Kate Sherry, Aviation Director at Edinburgh Airport, said:

“This new route to Turkey is another positive step as we build towards a bumper 2023.

“We’re looking forward to working with SunExpress on delivering this route, and giving passengers more opportunity to visit the beautiful city of Izmir.”

Peter Glade, SunExpress’ Commercial Director, said:

“Yaldi – we’re expanding our flight offer for our Scottish passengers in 2023!

“Everyone that has enough of the dreich weather back home will benefit from our enhanced connections for a well-deserved summer extension in beautiful Izmir. Swimming and beach weather until the end of October, an excellent cuisine as well as an unbeatable value for money ratio make for an unforgettable getaway next summer.”
