Sun Express, a 50/50 joint venture airline owned by Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines, is doing a route feasibility study on a Dublin – Antalya year-round service.

Antalya has become a great golf destination with more than 15 courses available to visitors, a range of new hotels, and a growing medical tourism infrastructure. Add in beaches and sunshine and it is  a leisure destination just waiting to greet more Irish visitors.
