Turkish Airlines, flying to more destinations in Africa than any other airline, marks another milestone in its international expansion with the launch of flights to Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone. With existing services to city–hubs of Accra, Lagos, Bamako, Conakry, Dakar, Abidjan, Cotonou, Douala, Yaounde, N’Djamena, Ougadougou, Niamey, Cape Town, Johannesburg and more, Turkish Airlines now adds flights to Freetown as its 52nd destination in Africa.

Beginning February 24, 2018 Turkish Airlines will operate its Freetown flights twice-weekly on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

The services will provide a link between Istanbul Atatürk International Airport and the Lungi International Airport via Ouagadougou. The return flight will also provide a substantial access to passengers departing from Sierra Leone to top global destinations such as London, Dubai, Paris, Frankfurt, Muscat, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Brussels, Berlin, Amsterdam, Vienna, Asmara, Hamburg, Tel-Aviv, Düsseldorf, Milano, and to a lot more via Turkish Airlines, the airline that flies to more countries and international destinations than any other in the world.
