Turkish – $699: San Francisco – Istanbul, Turkey. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

We reported on Thursday that Turkish Airlines is launching nonstop service between San Francisco and Istanbul in April, 2015. Here is a launch sales fare — $699, nonstop between San Francisco and Istanbul. This fare doesn’t earn miles, but for Spring travel, we don’t think you will do much better than this. For those who like to get on inaugural flights, yes, it is available at this price.

Turkish Airlines and ITA are not properly sync’ed, so this fare isn’t searchable on ITA yet. (Update 7/27/2014 @ 9:20PM Eastern – It is now searchable on ITA)

While we do not normally do not feature Turkish deals because they are non-mileage earning, we do feature non-mileage deals when they are cheap. This is $300 – $400 less than what the normal San Francisco – Istanbul flights have been running and this is a nonstop.
