Türkiye’s national flag carrier already operates a fleet of 14
A350-900s, and this deal for ten more takes its total order book
for the aircraft type to 40.
“We are delighted that
Turkish Airlines has decided to further enlarge its fleet with the
purchase of 10 more A350-900 aircraft,” said Christian Scherer,
Airbus Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Airbus International.
“With greater range
capability, passenger capacity and comfort, the A350 is the
perfect platform to connect Istanbul to the world. This repeat
order demonstrates the confidence for our unique new generation
aircraft that offers airlines unbeatable economics and efficiency.
We are proud to keep expanding our long-lasting partnership with
Turkish Airlines and Türkiye’s aviation sector overall.”
At the end of July, Airbus had received more than 1,000
orders for the 300-410 seat A350 from carriers around the globe.
