Turkish Airlines is currently offering a promotional $575 fare (including all taxes and fees) for seats on its daily flight from Washington-Dulles (IAD) to Istanbul. Select seats at this price are available now through mid-December and from mid-January through February. Turkish is not advertising how long the fare will be available so book now.
James and I snatched up the deal and are making a quick three day trip to Istanbul over Columbus Day weekend in October. Not only will TripBadger have the chance to review Turkish Airlines and explore Istanbul, but we will earn over 10,000 United MileagePlus elite qualifying miles, as Turkish Airlines is a member of the Star Alliance.
Look for a full report on Turkish Airlines and Istanbul next month. In the meantime, please send us any recommendations for what to see and where to eat!
