30 Years in The Sky

SunExpress, a joint venture of Turkish Airline and Lufthansa, continues its successful journey in aviation and tourism that started in 1989 by setting higher standards in travel industry. SunExpress who has been named Turkey’s Best Holiday Airline and World’s 5th Best Holiday Airline in 2019 by SkyTrax, Turkey’s Safest Airline by SAFA 2019 and Turkey’s Second Biggest Service Exporter, commenced its 30th year celebrations by painting one of its aircraft in special anniversary livery.
