“In redesigning our amenity kits, we wanted to keep all of our passengers in mind. For U.S. travelers, this means designing a kit that helps them re-imagine what the international travel experience should be."
New York (PRWEB) May 08, 2015
Turkish Airlines is continuing to raise the bar for U.S. travelers’ inflight experience with the introduction of new amenity kits featuring specially-designed products by luxury designer brands in both economy and business class. The new kits, expected to be phased in over the next year and a half, will be featured on inbound and outbound flights to the U.S. Select short haul flights, which include some of the 268 connections that Turkish offers to 109 countries via its Istanbul hub, will also see the upgraded kits as part of its Business Class service.
U.S. flights departing from Turkish Airlines’ seven U.S. destinations that include flights from New York, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Washington, D.C. (Dulles), Los Angeles and Houston will see the kits on board flights over the coming months. In addition, children flying on long haul flights in either class will be provided with the Miles & Smiles Amenity Kit designed especially for Turkish Airlines youngest travelers that includes an amenity bag, slippers, headphones and select toiletries.
“In redesigning our amenity kits, we wanted to keep all of our passengers in mind. For U.S. travelers, this means designing a kit that helps them re-imagine what the international travel experience should be,” said Turkish Airlines. “We also worked to create inflight products that kept quality in mind, while ensuring the functionality existed to allow passengers to carry their travel experience home with them and reuse their amenity kits.”
Long Haul Business Class bags for Outbound from Istanbul
The Jaguar branded bag comes in a quality, high tech material symbolizing the “grace, pace and space” of Jaguar cars. The bag includes high-quality branded Jaguar toiletries and other necessary inflight amenities like a sleep mask and blanket. Travelers can remember their trip long after they leave the plane as the bag may also be re-used as a tablet or document holder.
Long Haul Business Class bags for Inbound to Istanbul
The Cerruti branded bag is a fashionable bag made of a specifically developed leather-like material to create the sense of nonchalant chic which is typical for Cerruti, known for its textile and fashion work. The design of the bag is elegant and simple, with a front flap which adds sophistication. It’s the perfect size for passengers to reuse the bag as a toiletry bag or to store personal items when travelling. The bag contains a variety of comfort items including personal care items from Institut Karite.
The Long Haul Economy Class bags Inbound/Outbound to Istanbul
Economy Class will see a number of upgrades to its amenity kit which include bags by Chopard and Institut Karite on select inbound and outbound flights.

The discreet and re-usable kit also includes soft with non-skid rubber sole tube socks, comb/brush, foam earplugs, a dental kit and some cosmetic items.
