Turkish Airlines will now offer a TRT World channel on its in-flight entertainment, delivering live television programming for passengers.
Turkish Airlines’ chairman of the board and the executive committee, M. Ilker Ayci commented that the airline is “proud” to offer TRT World’s news “to 122 countries we fly” with the airline now also extending live TRT World broadcast across its wide-body aircraft.
“It is important to stay informed and up-to-date on world events,” said Ibrahim Eren, director general and chairman of TRT. “Passengers tune in to different outlets for news and it is vital to have variety in your sources to have a more well-rounded view of current events. We are grateful to Turkish Airlines for delivering our content in-flight and making this challenge a lot easier during flight. Being accessible also onboard is a major achievement to fulfill our promise to offer our service everywhere, whatever platform our audience prefer to receive it.”
Turkish Airlines’ in-flight entertainment system allows passengers to watch eight channels on board, including TRT World, broadcast live over satellite.
The TRT World international news platform launched in 2015 and is headquartered in Istanbul.
