SunExpress Celebrates its 30th Year

SunExpress, a joint venture of Turkish Airline and Lufthansa, continues its successful journey in aviation and tourism that started in 1989 by setting higher standards in the travel industry.

SunExpress has been named Turkey’s Best Holiday Airline and World’s 5th Best Holiday Airline in 2019 by SkyTrax, Turkey’s Safest Airline by SAFA 2019 and Turkey’s Second Biggest Service Exporter. The airline commenced its 30th year celebrations by painting one of its aircraft in special anniversary livery.

SunExpress, formerly painted its aircraft to different livery to celebrate cooperation and to make air travel more fun, and now is painting one of its Boeing 737 aircraft to celebrate its own birthday with a special 30th year livery. This year, all aircraft in the airline’s fleet will have the same design.

The aircraft that landed in Antalya on October 1, will be a part of a series of events and campaigns to celebrate the airline’s 30th Year. As the airline that connects Antalya and Izmir to most domestic and international destinations, SunExpress will proudly fly its newly painted aircraft to different cities around Turkey and Europe with 30-year experience serving its passengers.

Founded by the end of 1980s as a joint venture of Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa, SunExpress aims to support and further the interest of German tourists in Antalya. SunExpress started its operations with just one aircraft, a Boeing 737-300, on 2 April with a flight from Frankfurt to Antalya. After just three years in business SunExpress welcomed its one millionth passenger and expanded its fleet fivefold. Today SunExpress stands as the airline that connects Antalya to the most domestic and international destinations.

As one of the main supporters of Turkey’s tourism today, SunExpress operates in 16 destinations in Turkey and 36 cities in Europe. In 2019 alone, by adding 9 new destinations to its network, SunExpress continues to pursue its goal to be one of Europe’s most innovative and leading leisure airlines.
