Turkey, Algeria seal deal to increase flight frequency

Travelers between Turkey and Algeria will soon have more options, as civil aviation authorities from both countries agreed to significantly increase the number of reciprocal flights.

A Memorandum of Understanding signed on Tuesday will see weekly flights jump from 35 to 80, according to a statement from Turkey’s General Directorate of Civil Aviation (SHGM).

This represents a more than two-fold increase in flight capacity.

The agreement goes beyond just quantity, also removing restrictions on destinations within each country that flights can serve.

This added flexibility could lead to more direct routes and potentially lower fares for travelers.

The news comes as both Turkey and Algeria look to strengthen their economic and cultural ties.

Increased air travel is expected to boost tourism, trade, and overall connectivity between the two nations.
