Broadening its flight network, Turkey's flag carrier Turkish Airlines announced on Saturday that it would start operating flights to Newark, New Jersey in the US as of next week.
The carrier will operate four flights a week -- Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday -- until June 13 and then operate daily flights there, according to a press release.
Newark, as the biggest urban center in its state and one of the closest to New York City, will be the carrier's 10th destination in the US.
The round trip between Istanbul and Newark with Turkish Airlines is to start at $655 (including taxes and fees), it said.
The airline flies to 320 destinations globally -- 270 international and 50 domestic -- in 127 countries with its fleet of 362 aircraft.
