Turkish Airlines denied reports that it is planning to acquire shares from Istanbul Airport and that its debt obligation will be increasing due to this transaction.

Turkish Airlines suffered heavy losses totalling US$1.5 billion during 2018, despite increasing its value endorsement by 47.7%.

Turkish Airlines has decided to start operating scheduled flights, based on market conditions, to Port Harcourt and Pointe-Noire.

THY is really becoming powerful all over Africa.

Elsewhere, Turkish Airlines will launch services from Antalya in summer 2019, including to Baku, Beirut, Dusseldorf, London Gatwick, and Stockholm Arlanda, with B737-800s. They don't want to leave the leisure market to European competitors!

My friend you are a little late. See my post on 19.Feb for the new African destinations. :D :D Yes THY has a special interest in the African market.

For your comment about Antalya and THY, THY want to develop AYT as their new hub for year around scheduled flights. Currently they are asking their crew who want to be based at AYT so they can also establish their AYT based crew for these flights. I understand Antalya region became a year around destination for tourists as well as European retirees who live there or want to live there. THY wants to make AYT as one flight easy reach destination from Europe especially. There will be more destinations from AYT to come.

One would imagine TK would create a more professional look for a new and unknown airline thats they are associated with being a major global player, same with Etihad and Air Serbia another letdown.
