Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Turkish Airlines, flying to more countries than any other airline will be highlighting the use of sustainable aviation fuel and new destinations at the Arabian Travel Market 2022 including flights to Seattle. Visitors to the Turkish Airlines stand will also enjoy a host of activities, including flight simulations to explore Istanbul attractions virtually.
The flag carrier is highlighting sustainable aviation fuel at ATM prompted by the awareness of the effect the aviation sector has on climate change and hopes to help reduce the carbon footprint of its customers.

It is produced from sustainable raw materials and devoid of harmful heavy metals.
“With the use of sustainable fuel, our global fleet, spectacular airport lounges, network expansion and our exceptional hospitality and customer service, we expect another incredible year for Turkish Airlines. During this ATM hope to showcase our best travel options in terms of new destinations and world-class amenities,” said Mehmed Zingal General Manager for Turkish Airlines in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
