The CAPA Airline of the Year is awarded to the carrier that has had the greatest impact on the development of the airline industry, and established itself as a leader and the benchmark for others to follow.
“Turkish Airlines has established itself as a formidable competitor in a geographic region that boasts many of the world’s leading airlines. Turkish has created the world’s largest international network and now reaches over 200 destinations from its powerful hub in Istanbul. Under the strong and visionary leadership of its management and thanks to the dedicated efforts of its employees, Turkish Airlines has forged an industry-leading service culture, numerous innovative marketing campaigns and a consistently high quality product offering,” said Harbison. He added that the company had successfully exploited its geographic position with an innovative fleet deployment strategy and had successfully leveraged membership in Star Alliance and a wide range of bilateral codeshare relationships to further extend its global reach.
“All this is generating healthy profitability and we wish Turkish Airlines even greater success in 2014,” he noted.
THY CEO Kotil said it was their corporate strategy to regard their passengers as their bosses and to offer them the best possible service.
