Turkish Airlines has launched the Sunflower Lanyard to improve the travel experience of passengers with hidden disabilities.

Within the scope of the “Differences Add Value” program, the airline contributes to the awareness of its ground service personnel and cabin crew with the Sunflower Lanyards offered to its passengers with Hidden disabilities.

“While we are enhancing the privileged travel experience we offer as Turkish Airlines, we focus on the expectations and needs of our passengers and develop projects accordingly,” said Bilal Ekşi, CEO of Turkish Airlines.

“Therefore, we are able to host hundreds of thousands of guests from different cultures and regions with a high satisfaction ratio above the clouds. As the airline that flies to more countries and believes every destination in its network has its gems waiting to be discovered, we will continue to develop services that will remove the barriers before the clouds.”

“We are delighted that Turkish Airlines have joined the Hidden Disabilities Sunflower global network. Delivering our training to 17,000 staff is an incredible achievement that shows the airline’s commitment to making aviation accessible. Passengers with non-visible disabilities can travel to 129 countries with Turkish Airlines, secure in the knowledge that the airline staff greets them with kindness, patience, and understanding.” Paul White, CEO, Hidden Disabilities.
