Award-winning luxury carrier Turkish Airlines has a treat for those of us with a passion for the deep blue. Until the end of the year, the Istanbul-hubbed airline allows divers to pack their essential scuba-kit (and yes, that includes the wetsuit, flippers, tank, regulator, backplate, BCD and other, sometimes surprising paraphernalia) in addition to their allocated baggage allowance. The perk is on offer to those travelling to the world’s top dive centres, including Jordan, Thailand, South Africa, Indonesia, the Maldives and the Philippines. In fact, there are 20 different destinations on offer, so the underwater world is (perhaps literally) your oyster.
