Cape Town receives newest Turkish Airlines Dreamliner


Turkish Airlines have once again displayed their commitment to Cape Town by introducing the airline’s most advanced aircraft, the Dreamliner, on route from 1 April 2022.

Regarded as one of the most advanced aircraft for its fuel efficiency and range flexibility, the 787-9 Dreamliner offers refined and luxurious comfort for its passengers from South Africa to Istanbul. Turkish Airlines’ Dreamliner has a seating capacity of 300 passengers, including 270 economy class seats and 30 exceptional business class seats.

Within a spacious wide-body cabin featuring larger overhead luggage bins and extra-large windows, dimmable LED window shades give greater control over light entering the cabin. A new filtration, better air pressure and greater humidity help passengers feel less dryness and reduce fatigue. Meanwhile, the engines, interior, systems, and equipment all feature vibration isolation to create a quieter on-board experience.

For Business Class passengers, the 787-9 Dreamliner elevates this experience even higher. Forty-four-inch legroom and a 180-degree full flat 76-inch seat bed length are provided for each of the 30 seats. Suede-like Alcantara padding is used for the interior trimming of each Business Class seat.

Turkish Airlines Dreamliner will service four flights per week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) between Cape Town International Airport (CPT) and Istanbul Airport.
