Founded by Phoenician traders and boasting a cosmopolitan culture, the city of Palermo derives its name from the Ancient Greek word "panormus," which means "all harbor." With agriculture and trade as its primary sources of income, Palermo attracts many domestic and foreign tourists every year.
On the new destination, Turkish Airlines CEO Bilal Ekşi stated; “We are glad to add Palermo to our extensive flight network as our 344th worldwide and 9th Italian destination. As we strengthen our bonds with Italy with the new route, our guests from Palermo will be able to enjoy the unparalleled flight network of our flag carrier on their travels while our guests from all around the world will have the chance to experience Palermo’s wonders with Turkish Airlines privilege.”
Established in 1933 with a fleet of five aircraft, Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines has a fleet of 414 (passenger and cargo) aircraft flying to 344 worldwide destinations as 291 international and 53 domestics in 129 countries.
