Best part of the journey; Stopover in Istanbul by Turkish Airlines (PRNewsfoto/Turkish Airlines)

– Turkish Airlines is finally trying out a stopover service for 20+ hours connections with free hotel vouchers – in its ‘eternal wisdom’ the airline has chosen to offer it just for Pakistani passengers connecting to the US and Europe

Turkish Airlines, the carrier that flies to more countries in the world than any other airline, now offers its “Stopover” service for its transfer passengers, departing from Pakistan to arrive to the U.S., Schengen Countries, U.K., Ireland, and having more than 20 hours connecting time.

This new service – that set Pakistan as pilot region for the initial phase – will enable the transfer passengers that depart from Pakistan to arrive to the U.S., Schengen Countries, U.K., Ireland, and also have more than 20 hours connecting time, to stop over in Istanbul with an accommodation cheque prepared by Turkish Airlines’ authorized staff after completing the flight booking process of the passenger. This cheque will enable the economy class passengers to stay 1 night at a 4-star hotel; and also the business class passengers to stay 2 nights at a 5-star hotel in Sultanahmet and Taksim, generally described as the central points of Istanbul.

Uzbekistan and Indonesia are promoting tourism between the countries – amongst the odd ideas – a direct Tashkent to Bali flight
