Turkish Airlines STOPOVER PAID BY CARRIER (STPC)
Turkish Airlines runs a transit package for those passengers with long transit times – commonly known as a Stopover Paid by Carrier or STPC. In fact, some notable airlines also have an STPC policy such as Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, and Asiana Airlines also have their own STPC policies.
Unlike Qatar Airways’ STPC, the eligibility rules for Turkish Airlines STPC isn’t that well defined.
To be able to make use of Turkish Airlines STPC the transit must be because there are no shorter scheduled flights for your route (i.e. Because you are forced to), not because you want to sit in the lounge for an absorbent amount of time.
Just to make it absolutely clear, Turkish Airlines STPC is a separate program to the Visit Turkey Stopover programme – The latter offers a free layover in Istanbul to visit the city.
