Dar es Salaam. Turkish Airlines Corporate Club has won the first-ever GT Tested reader survey award for “Best Corporate Travel Programme for Business Travelers”.

The statement issued by the local airline’s local office has said the global airline also received two awards for “Best Airline for Business Class” and “Best Airport Staff/Gate Agents” for the second consecutive year.

Turkish Airlines, flying to more countries and international destinations than any other airline in the world, is the recipient of three 2018 GT Tested Reader Survey awards by Global Traveler magazine.

This is the 15th year of the magazine’s survey, which polled more than 22,000 frequent business and luxury travellers to name the best in more than 80 travel-related categories. “At Turkish Airlines, we place a premium on the value of our business and corporate travelers. Many of the hallmarks of Turkish Airlines’ award-winning services are developed with a long-term vision of creating a seamless door-to-door experience for our business and corporate travelers, and these awards are a true testament of our customer-first philosophy,” said Mert Dorman, the vice president of Turkish Airlines SVP Corporate Marketing and Distribution Channels.

“We thank our passengers, Corporate Club members and Global Traveler magazine for recognizing our award-winning product and services.”

He said Turkish Airlines corporate club offers one of the world’s most extensive corporate frequent flyer programs, designed to offer a wide variety of cost-effective advantages for corporations while offering premium services.

“There is no fee to join and no commitments, and members receive benefits such as exclusive upfront discounts, special baggage allowances, flexibility of changes/cancellations without penalty, free tickets, upgrades and access to passenger lounges,” he said.

Turkish Airlines flies to more than 300 destinations in 124 countries on five continents and connects 17 cities in the Americas to more than 40 countries that are less than three hours from Istanbul.
