Turkish Airlines have surprised their cabin crew with gifts as part of a celebration of International Cabin Crew Day.
The celebration which took place at Birmingham Airport saw local children present gifts of flowers, chocolates, a collection of William Shakespeare plays, and a selection of Orchestra of the Swan music including Mozart and Hans Gal, to hard-working cabin crew members.
The airline surprised their crew members shortly after the Boeing 737-800 aircraft landed in Birmingham Airport from Istanbul.
Turkish Airlines operates 12 weekly flights out of Birmingham Airport which allows passengers to reach over 274 international locations via Istanbul. The hard-working cabin crew have helped Turkish Airlines to achieve ‘Europe’s Best Airline’ for four consecutive years and they have recently been voted ‘Best in Business Class Catering 2015’.
Selim Ozturk, Turkish Airlines General Manager at Birmingham Airport was in attendance as the gifts were distributed amongst staff; he commented after the event:
“We wanted to do something really special for our staff to celebrate the day with them. Our crew is vital to the continued success of our airline and we are constantly told how fantastic our people are from passengers. We wanted to show them that we appreciate everything they do to make our customer’s journeys enjoyable and stress free. The children really enjoyed the experience and our crew were delighted to receive their gifts.”
