Two weekly nonstop flights from Stockholm to the bustling Aegean city of Izmir – Holiday carrier SunExpress offers Swedish and Turkish travelers a new direct connection to Turkey
The new Stockholm-Izmir route will be inaugurated on April 20th with two weekly services on Thursday and Sunday.
“For several years now we have seen a constant increase of travelers from Stockholm Arlanda to Turkey. Demand continues to look strong, and we are happy that SunExpress will be flying to Izmir on a regular basis,” says Kjell-Åke Westin, Airport Director of Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

SunExpress was founded in October 1989 as a joint venture, which is equally owned by Turkish Airlines and Lufthansa. With its main hubs in Antalya and Izmir SunExpress carried about 7 million passengers in 2013 to 93 destinations – both on scheduled as well as charter flights.

“SunExpress has always been present in the Swedish market by connecting Antalya with several Swedish cities. We are now looking forward to further expand this commitment with two weekly flights from Stockholm to Izmir,” says Andreas Thams, Director Commercial from SunExpress. “We are inviting all our guests to explore the numerous historical locations in Izmir and indulge at endless sandy beaches of the beautiful Aegean Region of Turkey.”
SunExpress has a modern fleet of currently 28 Boeing 737-800 under own operation and 34 Boeing 737-800/700 aircraft operating in wet-lease for Anadolu Jet and Turkish Airlines with a total capacity of approximately 11.000 seats. The route to Stockholm will be served by the 737-800 every Thursday and Sunday leaving Izmir at 6:15 a.m., arriving in Stockholm at 9:00 a.m. SunExpress departs from Stockholm at 9:50 a.m. arriving in Izmir at 2:30 p.m.
