Operating touristic charter flights between Europe, specifically Germany and Antalya for a long time, SunExpress became the first private airline company to offer international scheduled flights from Turkey, with its Antalya-Frankfurt flight in 2001. The home base of SunExpress is in Antalya on the Turkish Riviera.
