"Aeroflot" will fly direct flights
Aeroflot Airlines announced the opening of direct scheduled flights to Adana Airport (Turkey) from June 8, 2023.
In the summer season, Aeroflot flies from Sheremetyevo to Istanbul, Bodrum, Dalaman, Antalya and Izmir, Adana will be the sixth destination in its route network in Turkey.
According to Aeroflot in a news item on its website, flights to Adana will operate from Terminal C of Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport with a frequency of three times a week: on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
Prices for tickets to Adana in June start from 20.3 thousand rubles one way. On the way back you can find and pr 12,8. Depending on the date and the selected fare level, the price may vary.
According to the interviewed experts, the new flights of the national carrier are primarily designed for passengers associated with the construction and maintenance of the Akkuyu NPP, which is being built by Rosatom structures in the neighboring province of Mersin.
It should be noted that AZUR air has been operating irregular customized flights to Adana for transportation of Russians, one way or another connected with the plant, for quite a long time, but probably now the volume needs to be increased and made more regular. In 2023, the first power unit of Akkuyu NPP is to be launched, and 3 more are in the pipeline.
On May 5, Turkish Finance Minister Noureddin Nebati said that three test flights had already taken place at Cukurova airport, and the new air harbor "is planned to be put into operation in June." However, before that, the dates for the start of operation of Çukurova were repeatedly "firmly" named and then postponed.
Despite the apparent partial guaranteed load of passengers associated with the construction in Mersin, the new flights to Adana may well be of interest to independent travelers looking for a new Turkish experience.
Mersin has long been considered to be Antalya's competitor - the beaches here are not inferior, and in some respects even superior to Antalya's. For example, unlike Antalya, there are many more beaches with fine sand and smooth entry into the water, which are loved by Russian family tourists. There are also huge, long "open" beaches like the famous Patara. Among the beaches of Mersin there are 11 beaches with "Blue Flags".
