Turkish Airlines plans to launch direct services to Sydney next year.

Turkish Airlines is eyeing non-stop services from Istanbul to Sydney starting next year.

The service, which would be among the longest non-stop commercial flights in the world, would make Turkish the only carrier operating directly from Europe to Australia.
