Turkey’s national air carrier, Turkish Airlines, will acquire dozens of new planes this year, a top executive of the firm said yesterday.

Turkish Airlines Executive Board Chairman Hamdi Topçu said 36 new planes will be added to the airline’s fleet this year, as part of 91-plane acquisition program. The airline company made investments worth $950 million last year, excluding plane purchases, Topçu said.

The company is also slated to complete the construction of a 380,000-square-meter indoor hangar area at Sabiha Gökçen Airport soon, Topçu said. Turkish Airlines’ maintenance capacity will increase fourfold when the facility goes into operation in September.

very nice next they nust get a book on customer service and learn that as at present they think they are there for the goverment ministers and ambassadors who can hold back planes for their pleasure. Lots of planes dont make a good airline but good customer service and on time departures/arrivals do that is what Turkish airlines must learn and not keep 250 people waiting in Dubai for a letter for over 2 hours"!It was good that the minister who kept the plane waiting for half hour was booed off-
