Now’s pretty much the perfect time to start looking at this year’s summer holiday options. If you’re in the mood for somewhere with some stunning Byzantine architecture, authentic sis kebabs and dreamy beaches, you’re in luck. There’s a brand-new airline on the scene and it’s offering Brits budget flights to Istanbul.

Ajet, previously known as AnadoluJet, is owned by Turkish Airlines and plans to take to the skies from the end of this month. 

The revamped airline will be offering a route to Istanbul from London Stansted from March 31. Tickets are available to book right now on the Ajet website from £131 one way. 

Ajet says that it plans to have a fleet of 200 planes within the next decade, so there could be more affordable routes on the way. Right now it has 95 aircraft lined up and ready to jet off to 93 different destinations. You can find out more and book on the Ajet website here
