As the summer season begins we have two things to celebrate. Firstly the success of Turkey's national football team in the 2002 World Cup Finals, and secondly the rise in passenger load rate to the highest level for the past two years. The latter is a source of pride for Turkish Airlines.
Reservation data for July and August indicate that this summer season is going to be extremely favourable for both THY and Turkish tourism.
The passenger load rate is high for all of our 103 domestic and international flight routes. In particular, the increase in passenger rates for our 77 international routes compared to 2000 and 2001 is cause for congratulation both for our airline and Turkey as a whole.
