“I am delighted to be adding two more A330 Family variants to our fleet,” said Dr Temel Kotil, CEO of Turkish Airlines. “The benefits we will gain from the flexibility of the aircraft and commonality with our existing fleet will provide a strong basis for our continued growth.”

The A330-300 has a range of up to 5,650 nm / 10,500 km with a full passenger load.

The A330-200F is capable of carrying 65 tonnes over 4,000nm/7,400km or 70 tonnes over 3,200nm/5,900km.
