Dear Guests,
Turkish Airlines has launched one its most important initiatives of recent years. As I have stated many times before, our greatest hope is to be able to offer our flight services to a larger group of people by making flying more widespread and no longer a luxury form of travel. As Turkey’s flagship carrier, we aspire to enter the ranks of Europe’s leading airlines. This means acquiring new flight destinations and carrying more passengers.
The agreements signed with Airbus and Boeing at the end of July constitute the first step towards achieving those goals. It has been decided to purchase 15 medium and wide-bodied planes from the U.S. Boeing corporation and another 36 aircraft from Europe’s Airbus, thus bringing the number of Turkish Airlines planes up from its current 65 to 70 by the end of the month. This number will rise to 90 when the planes ordered over the past three years go into operation and some rented aircraft are withdrawn from service.
