Operated by TAV Airports, Antalya Gazipaşa Airport welcomed the first of the direct flights launched by Jet Time Oy Finland Airlines between Gazipaşa and Helsinki. As part of the flight schedule that Jet Time Oy Finland will be operating to Gazipaşa Airport during the summer season, 148 passengers traveling from Finland's capital Helsinki on a B737-700 were greeted by TAV Gazipaşa personnel with flowers and aqueduct at a ceremony held at the airport.
TAV Gazipaşa Operations Coordinator Cengiz Aşıklı said “We began seeing the results of the positive work we have been carrying out for the improvement of Gazipaşa Airport, which is a significant facility for Alanya and the region. We are very happy to welcome the first of the Helsinki flights that Jet Time Oy Finland launched to bring passengers from the Scandinavian countries to Gazipaşa, who constitute an important tourism potential for our region. Jet Time Oy Finland’s Helsinki flight is another alternative that we offer our passengers flying to the Scandinavian countries where we have other direct flights from Gazipaşa. We will continue our hard work in order to contribute to the development of Gazipaşa as well as the tourism sector in Alanya and our region.”
