Turkish Airlines W17 Saudi Arabia / Eritrea changes as of 30AUG17

Turkish Airlines in the last few days made additional changes to its planned service to Taif and Gassim in Saudi Arabia, as well as Asmara in Eritrea, effective 29OCT17. Previously planned consolidating Gassim and Taif service as Istanbul Ataturk – Taif – Gassim – Istanbul Ataturk (3 weekly), has been cancelled as the airline suspends Gassim service for winter season (29OCT17 – 24MAR18).

The airline now plans to consolidate Taif and Asmara service once again, where it schedules Istanbul Ataturk – Taif – Asmara route, 3 times a week with A321 aircraft. TK previously operated this routing until late-June 2017.
