Turkish Airlines to Take Delivery of 26 Boeing Aircraft in 2016

Boeing will this year deliver six B777-300ERs and 20 Next-Generation B737-800s to Turkish Airlines.

"Turkish Airlines is one of the world's ascendant airlines and an established global network carrier. It has achieved this through various significant investments in its fleet which now stands at over 311 and growing," said Ahmet Bolat, Chief Investment and Technology Officer, Turkish Airlines. "The delivery of a further 26 Boeing aircraft this year, which form a substantial part of our long-haul and short-haul fleets, are integral to Turkish's continued growth and we look forward to introducing the new planes on our domestic and international network."  

Turkish Airlines and Boeing share a long history that goes back to 1945, with the arrival of the airline's first DC-3/C-47 airliners. Turkish Airlines entered the jet age in the late 1960s, when it began operating DC-9, DC-10 and Boeing 707 airplanes.

Over the years, Turkish carriers have also flown the Boeing 727, 757, MD-80 and the most modern 737 and 777 airplanes.

Turkish Technic, a prominent subsidiary of the airline, is a world-class maintenance center for Boeing 737 airplanes, with certifications from regulatory authorities throughout the region and beyond.
