Thus, direct flights started from Bursa Terminal to Istanbul Airport with 4 departures and 4 arrivals a day. In the meantime, in addition to direct flights, flights via HAVAIST will continue regularly from Sabiha Gökçen.

Reminding that they provide transportation services to Yenişehir and Sabiha Gökçen Airports as the Metropolitan Municipality for this reason, Mayor Aktaş said, “The fact that our flights to Sabiha Gökçen Airport have reached 90 percent fullness is an indication of how accurate the work is.
