Turkish Airlines will soon be announcing a brand new route between their hub in Istanbul, Turkey and Vancouver, Canada.
This addition would be the airline’s third Canadian route; Toronto and Montreal being the other two. Turkish Airlines also flies to most US hubs, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York JFK, Newark, San Francisco, and Washington DC.
The flight will be operated by the airline’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner or Airbus A350 which both feature their latest products. Ijaaz recently flew the ATL-IST route round trip to experience TK’s new business class seat, you can read his review here. (We are giving away a Turkish Airlines Versace Amenity kit, learn how to enter by reading the post above.)
The route is expected to operate 3x weekly and will begin service mid-2020, though we are unsure of the timing at this point. This post will be updated as more details are made available. The airline is expected to make an official announcement in the coming days.
Turkish Airlines is known to be quite generous with award availability, and flights between North America and Turkey can be booked for just 57,500 Aeroplan miles each way in business class. Combined with low fuel surcharges, this makes for an exceptional value. We look forward to welcoming a new airline to Vancouver, and this can only mean good things in terms of the competition between other European flights.
The MasterMiles Team hopes to be on one of the inaugural flights.

The Master has more butt-in-seat First and Business Class miles than anyone we know, and has experienced more luxury in an airplane than most of us will in a lifetime. He knows the ins and outs of almost every airline frequent flyer and credit card program. He has enough points and miles to fly for the rest of his life in premium seats. He has stayed at some of the world’s best hotels, and doesn’t settle for anything less than 5 stars. He is the king of elite status and he knows things he isn't supposed to. That's why we call him The Master.
