Bolat said, “This year, we are adding Lusaka, which is the most important point of Africa in terms of natural life tourism, to our effort to bring people and the world together with our inspiration to unite the continents. As the airline that flies to the most destinations in the African continent, we show the importance we attach to this continent with our flights to 62 destinations. As Turkish Airlines, we continue our message of bringing the distances closer, and we think that our effort to unite different cultures and people adds to our strength.”
