Turkish Airlines has begun its first flights to Melbourne, with Sydney to follow by the end of the year.

The airline will connect Australia to Istanbul, a historical city that straddles Europe and Asia. The initial flights will use Boeing 777 aircraft, but will later switch to Boeing 787 Dreamliners and Airbus A350s. Turkish Airlines plans to offer non-stop flights in the future using its new Airbus A350-1000 jets.

The flights between Istanbul and Melbourne will have a stopover in Singapore. Turkish Airlines is targeting Qantas Platinum Frequent Flyers with a free status match to Turkish Airlines Elite Gold. The airline is known for its high-quality service, including gourmet meals prepared by actual chefs. Turkish Airlines' business class seats offer privacy and direct aisle access.

The airline's Istanbul Airport hub features two lounges for business class travellers and frequent flyers. Customers with stopovers in Istanbul can enjoy city tours or a complimentary hotel stay.
