Both specially designed kits were supplied to Turkish Airlines by Formia, the international guest amenity and hospitality specialist.

The second award won by Turkish Airlines in this year’s event was the “Trio Amenity Kit” presented for its Comfort Class passengers. A set of three bags that maintains novelty for passengers through regular rotation, combined with cosmetics by the renowned German brand; Bogner.
