Open up a direct flight route between Vancouver and Istanbul

This petition had 1,547 supporters

I am a Canadian of Turkish descent living in Vancouver for years. I am part of a several thousand-strong Turkish-Canadian community in BC. I know that Turkish Airlines and Air Canada are operating daily flights from Toronto and Montreal to Istanbul.


I was wondering whether Turkish Airlines would be willing to operate to and from Vancouver.


Living on the west coast, it is costly and not easy to travel to Turkey with flights from Toronto and Montreal. Together with my family, I wish to travel to Turkey at least once a year and my relatives in Turkey wish to visit us in Canada more often. I also wish to establish business relations with the Turkish companies but many ask whether there are direct flights. I believe Vancouver will benefit from more direct flights to the west coast. I can say that this feeling is shared by not only Turkish-Canadians only, but many nationalities whose native home is in that part of the world or their children are studying here. So, there would be many people who would be happy to see them here.


I request your best judgement and support in your capacity for opening up a direct flight route between Vancouver and Istanbul.
