Turkish Airlines currently operates daily flights from Mumbai, and New Delhi to Istanbul, but Dr. Burak Akcapar, Turkish Ambassador to India, has said that the airline is asking the Indian government for permission to double the number of flights from these destinations and from four other destinations, including Chennai, Hyderbad, Bangalore, and Kolkata.
Turkey has struggled to gain the status of 16th largest economy in the world, which has resulted from free-trade agreements they have signed with 21 different countries. Now Turkey wants to sign an agreement with India. The two countries have completed a joint study on a free-trade agreement, but have yet to sign it. The additional flights will help make that happen and business people from both countries are waiting for this to happen.
