Turksh Airlines says the route will take effect from 22 July. Turkish Airlines is increasing its network from Sabiha Gokcen because the main Ataturk airport is increasingly slot-restricted.
With the addition of Bahrain the carrier will expand its international reach from the airport to 24 destinations.
Turkish Airlines has also started serving the northern Iraqi city of Erbil fromSabiha Gokcen. It inaugurated four-times weekly flights on 20 July and will raise the frequency to daily from 16 September.
