Turkish airline Atlasjet is to resume flights from Istanbul to London by May.
Chief executive Murat Ersoy says the carrier will fly to Luton. It used to fly to London Stansted but this service was cancelled two years ago.
“The flights will begin in May, but will increase in June,” says Esroy, adding that connections to Ercan airport in Cyprus will be offered.
Turkish Airlines serves the UK capital’s Heathrow and Gatwick airports, while another Turkish carrier, Pegasus, flies to Stansted.
Easyjet is to stop its Luton-Istanbul flights by end of March.
