Turkish Airlines’ (THY) Skylife magazine is now being printed in Japanese and, according to an announcement from the THY Press Office, the magazine in Japanese will be offered to passengers on flights to Tokyo, Osaka, Okinawa, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Sapporo.
The airline official was quoted as saying that the company was printing the magazine in Japanese version as Turkey’s national flag-carrier already flies to six destinations in Japan: Tokyo; Osaka; Okinawa; Fukuoka; Nagoya; and Sapporo.
Skylife is a magazine that Turkish Airlines publishes to promote the cities to which the airline flies plus publicize important cultural and art events in Turkey and in the world.
The Japanese language version is being published in parallel with its standard version.
The Japanese version of Skylife, which introduces Turkey as well as various other countries THY flies to and focuses on culture and art activities and current issues related with these countries, is parallel to the contents of the standard magazine with inclusion of issues that may attract Japanese passengers.
The Japanese are known to be a nation that loves reading, and THY’s Japanese customers have indicated that they are glad to be able to read Skyline in their own language during long haul flights between Turkey and Japan. It has been noted that many of the customers have taken the magazine along with them after the flights.
