The Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines will reactivate the hub connection to the Istanbul hub on June 30, 2022 from Leipzig/Halle. It is one of the last routes in the Germany-Austria-Switzerland region to make a comeback.

The carrier announces that daily flights between Istanbul and Leipzig/Halle vv will resume from the end of June 2022. This means that the East German airport is again connected to the main hub of the Turkish Star Alliance member. Compared to the resumption of connections to other airports, Turkish Airlines decided on Leipzig/Halle quite late.

So far, however, not all connections that existed before the pandemic have been reactivated. For example, the Graz-Istanbul route is still idle. Turkish Airlines currently has no short-term plans to resume operations. The situation is constantly being evaluated, but a return in the 2022 summer flight schedule is rather unlikely. In Austria, the focus is on the area of Passenger flights to Vienna and Salzburg. Linz Airport is served as part of cargo connections.
