Turkish Airlines to start Afghanistan service as planned from July 2011 with new schedule

As per 28JUN11 GDS inventory display, Turkish Airlines has adjusted planned operational schedule for its new Istanbul Ataturk – Kabul service, and has re-opened reservation.

New flight schedule is operating 4 hours later than previously scheduled. As a result the launch date is being “pushed back” to 10JUL11, instead of 09JUL11. On 27JUN11, this website reported that TK is canceling the service due to closure of reservation in the system. The original post is being removed as reservation is opened once again as of 28JUN11.

New schedule:

TK706 IST0345 – 1000KBL 320 147
TK707 KBL1200 – 1615IST 320 147
