Turkish Airlines has launched flights to Krakow, one of Poland’s historic cities, as its second Polish destination after Warsaw.

The airline will visit Krakow three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Turkish Airlines guests can travel from Istanbul to Krakow and back with prices starting at $255, tax included.

According to the official news release from the company, Turkish Airlines flies to more countries than any other airline in the world. The addition of Krakow brings them to 343 flight destinations.

Turkish Airlines offers its guests unlimited connection possibilities while maintaining quality and service to all corners of the world.

The airline was established in 1933 with a fleet of just five aircrafts. Over nine decades later, the Star Alliance member has a fleet of 414 (passenger and cargo) aircrafts flying to 343 destinations, including 290 international and 53 domestic in 129 countries.

Turkish Airlines Chief Investment & Technology Officer, Levent Konukçu, detailed the logistics of the newly added route.

“As the airline flies to more countries than any other in the world, we are glad to add Krakow, our second destination in Poland after Warsaw, to our flight network,” Konukçu said. “With this route, our flag carrier has reached 343 destinations in 129 countries. We will operate 3 weekly reciprocal flights to Krakow, the historic former capital of Poland. We are connecting Krakow to the world with Turkish Airlines’ unique flight experience.”

Recognized as a city of literature by UNESCO, Krakow traditionally stands out as Poland’s center of science, culture and art. Known as the heart of Poland due to its former capital status and many historical events, the city welcomes local and foreign tourists each year.
