Turkish Airlines provides limitless comfort to its passengers

Turkish Airlines, flying to more countries than any other airline in the world, has intensified its efforts to further improve the travel experience of its passengers.
In addition to its ever-expanding route network, Kharhiv (Ukraine), Conakry (Guinea), Phuket (Thailand), Voronezh and Samara (Russia) being the latest additions of this year, the airline that flies to 296 destinations in 120 countries excels in products and services designed to take the passenger experience to an even higher level.
Travelers who choose Turkish Airlines can take advantage of the exclusive Turkish Airlines Lounge Istanbul at Istanbul Ataturk Airport, a place of rest and relaxation for those who seek comfort and refreshment immediately after they land.
The lounge, which is located on a 250-square meter area, can accommodate 38 people and is open from 5 a.m. until 1 a.m.
The place is designed for comfort, allowing travelers access to all kinds of tools for managing their business, as well as abundant gastronomic options including Turkish cuisine. A library with the latest editions of local and international magazines and newspapers, in addition to free wi-fi access, are among some of the other facilities. Visitors will also find relaxation areas, equipped with showers, dressing rooms and an ironing room with staff to attend to their needs.
The lounge is for Turkish Airlines business class passengers arriving in Istanbul and Elite Plus members traveling in economy class.
Turkish Airlines Lounges now feature new wireless charging stations that let passengers charge their compatible mobile devices through power outlets located on the lounge tables. Passengers will also be able to use these stations in Turkish Airlines’ Taksim Sales Office.
Another service recently introduced by Turkish Airlines includes a shuttle between San Diego and Los Angeles (which passengers can book directly with the ticket number and their contact details).


Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis G70 arrives in the Middle East

Genesis has officially launched its compact G70 luxury sedan in Middle East markets, completing the brand’s core sedan lineup. Engineered as a dynamic car with strong appeal to younger customers and more enthusiastic drivers, the G70 joins the flagship G90 large sedan and mid-sized G80 and G80 Sport.

“Genesis has been very well received in the Middle East, and the Genesis G70 will be an exciting new chapter in our story,” said Altar Yilmaz, Genesis general manager for the Africa and Middle East region. “For many of our potential customers, this is the Genesis they have been waiting for.”

The arrival of the Genesis G70 in showrooms follows a previous display presentation at the Dubai International Motor Show in November 2017, where Genesis fielded a large number of inquiries about the car. With larger G80 and G90 models already growing a strong base of loyal customers, it is expected the compact model will add significantly to the brand’s appeal in the competitive Middle East luxury car market.

The G70 showcases the future direction of the Genesis brand’s “Athletic Elegance” design identity. 

“The G70’s interior is configured to prioritize an excellent user experience, with superb fit and finish throughout. The interior packaging reflects simplicity, with an emphasis on genuine functionality instead of gimmickry. A horizontal layout brings a sense of stability, with an intuitively laid-out switchgear and a comfortable, assertive sport steering wheel,” the carmaker said.

The G70 offers two powertrains in the Middle East region — a 3.3-liter V6 petrol turbo and 2.0-liter I4 petrol turbo.  The Lambda II 3.3-liter V6 turbo GDI engine is the heart of the enthusiast-focused G70 Sport, with 370 ps and maximum torque of 52.0 kg.m (510 N.m) 0 to 100 km/h acceleration in 4.7 seconds, and a top speed of 270 km/h.
