SunExpress - no, it's not a holiday-themed newspaper. Nope, not a sunshine delivery service either (but we're definitely pinching that idea). It's actually an established and affordable airline with direct flights to one of the sunniest destinations around (and one of our personal faves) - Turkey. That's right, bag yourself a SunExpress flight and you're just four hours away from being sprawled out on a sun lounger along the Turkish Riviera. To give you an idea, that's about the same amount of time it would take to watch Avatar one and a half times. We know which we'd rather do.
