A famous Ukrainian composer Evgeny Khmara became an ambassador of Turkish Airlines
Recently, composer and virtuoso pianist Evgeny Khmara in the social networks informed his followers that he had become the official ambassador of Turkish Airlines. The composer always told about his love for the sky: since childhood he has been dreaming of airplanes and can recognize the model of an airplane by the sound of the engine. But why Turkish Airlines?
Evgeny Khmara told a fascinating story that happened to him a year ago:
“Last winter we were on holidays with my wife and two small children in Thailand. Suddenly, Covid-19 began, the world started to panic. We had to urgently return home. But in a plane from Bangkok to Kiev something incredible happened: our son Nikolai began to cough heavily, almost suffocating. My wife and I were terrified and the passengers looked at us in horror, afraid of getting infected. We had to leave the plane and go to a medical center at the airport.
To our big relief, the doctor said that our son was fine. However, a new problem arose: our plane flew away, and we stayed in Bangkok. In order to get on another flight, we had to buy new tickets at our own expense. With small children in a foreign country, we were confused and did not know what to do next.
Suddenly I remembered my acquaintance, Mr. Zafer, who heads the Lviv branch of Turkish Airlines in Ukraine. To my surprise, he reacted immediately, despite the fact that it was night in Ukraine. Mr. Zafer personally wrote a letter to the representatives of the company in Thailand. He said that we were very important passengers and asked to do everything possible to help us get home. Thanks to this letter, we departed to Kyiv on the next flight and even were provided with a business lounge, where we could relax after the stress of that crazy day. I was extremely grateful for this attitude and support, especially because at that time Mr. Zafer Agirtmish almost did not know me. That's how our friendship with Turkish Airlines began. "
Evgeny Khmara intrigues followers, saying that they have many plans with Turkish Airlines and some of them may be a real surprise to many Ukrainians.
