“Cooperating with AtlasGlobal serves to strengthen KLM’s network in the region, offering passengers more transfer options and, in time, a greater number of destinations in Turkey.Turkey is an important destination for business and leisure passengers. AtlasGlobal is a particularly reliable partner, delivering a good product.”
