The carrier will offer the flight three times a week ― every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday ― to the Turkish city and each plane will be able to accommodate 299 people.

The flights that will fly from Incheon every Tuesday and Saturday will depart at 9:45 a.m. and the Thursday flight will take off at 10:45 a.m.
