Turkish Airlines plans to strengthen its fleet with six hundred aircraft
In a recent announcement, Ahmet Bolat, the chairman of Turkish Airlines, revealed that the airline is preparing to order a historic number of planes to expand its fleet. The order will include 600 aircraft including 400 narrow-body aircraft and 200 wide-body aircraft.
Turkish Airlines has been one of the fastest growing airlines in recent years, and this new announcement confirms its ambition to grow even further. With a focus on narrowbody and widebody aircraft, the airline is aiming for growth on both short- and long-haul routes.
The airline already operates a large fleet of Boeing 737s and Airbus A320s, and this new order is expected to increase that number.
Wide-body aircraft, on the other hand, are used for long-haul flights, and the carrier from the Asian country has been steadily expanding its international routes over the years. With a focus on routes between Europe and Asia, the company has already established a strong network of routes to various destinations around the world. This new wide-body aircraft order should strengthen the company’s position in the global market.
Exact details regarding aircraft types and manufacturers have yet to be announced, but the order is expected to be worth billions of dollars. This is a significant investment for Turkish Airlines, which operates in a highly competitive industry.
