Turkish Airlines is to take delivery of 26 Boeing aircraft in 2016, with six 777-300ERs and 20 Next-Generation 737-800s.

Boeing has received more than 7,000 orders for Next Generation 737s saying this is because of its wide market base, efficiency and low operating costs.

Turkish Airlines chief investment and technology officer, Ahmet Bolat says: “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.”

We have a strong relationship with the airline and are honoured that we continue to play a key part in supporting its ambitious growth plans.”
