Turkish Airlines 5th Anniversary & Partner Awards

On April 5, 2018 Turkish Airlines hosted a special dinner at the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria, celebrating their 5th Year Anniversary operating in Houston, Texas. Attending the celebration were community leaders like Sylvester Turner, Mayor of the City of Houston; consul generals from the Consular Corps of Houston; representing Turkey, Akil Oktem; Pakistan, Aisha Farooqui; and other destinations as well as public officials and prominent Houstonians from the International Community. The evening was a chance to honor the many industry partners and supporters that have played a role in their successful time serving the Houston market. Congratulations to Horizon Travel for receiving the best Pakistani Travel Agent Award. Everyone enjoyed the lavishly decorated ballroom, Traditional Dance Troop, Turkish Musicians, and the wonderful food finished off by a lovely Turkish coffee served by husband and wife owners of the Turquoise Grill, Yilmaz “Jim” and Deanna Dokuyucu. Turkish Airlines is expanding and growing rapidly due to their attention to detail, stellar customer service, and the comfort of their passengers.

“It was a great pleasure celebrating Turkish Airlines’ fifth year in Houston yesterday. During my previous posting as Consul General, one of our main goals was to establish a Turkish Airlines’ leg in Houston and make Istanbul a connection and a gateway to the rest of the world. It gives me great pleasure to see our work come to fruition. I would like to thank the Honorable Sylvester Turner, Mayor of Houston, THY Vice President Mustafa Dogan, THY General Manager Yigit Avci and the Director of Aviation of the Houston Airport System Mario Diaz for a great evening. I look forward to working with them to build on the progress we have made so far and look forward to celebrating future anniversaries,” T.C. Houston Baskonsoloslugu, Turkish Consulate General in Houston said.
