Voice of Travelers to Ankara

Airfare ticket to Ankara

I recently visited Ankara as part of my Turkish study tour. I flew to Ankara with Pegasus Airlines from Amman. My airfare ticket was purchased as a group ticket online first, but the ticket portal send a message later that the flight has been canceled. As a group, we went to a ticket agent and he rebooked our ticket to Ankara for a different date. While the ticket to Turkey was for the airport in Ankara, we flew out of Turkey on a group ticket from Istanbul. Pegasus gave a great service on both flights.

Visiting Ankara on a return ticket from Prague

My company has business in Ankara, so I visit our Ankara office from time to time. I flew to Ankara last month, with an airfare ticket issued for the economic class from Prague to Ankara, but my boss surprised me with a ticket back being for the business class. The service aboard Turkish airline was great in both classes, to Ankara as well as on the way from Ankara home. The ticket might have been expensive but I think our ticket agent gives us discount as we book some flight ticket almost every month.
