“Boeing has played a pivotal role in the development of Turkish Airlines and these deliveries continue to enable this airline to compete, expand and reach new short and long-range destinations nonstop from our hubs in Istanbul,” said Ahmet Bolat, the chief investment and technology officer at Turkish Airlines.
“We are committed to offering our passengers on every route the best flying experience possible and we deliver on that promise, as the 777 and 737 provide comfort and convenience in spacious cabins, all matched with unrivalled reliability,” he said.
“We are incredibly proud of our long standing relationship with Turkish Airlines, which now stretches back over 40 years, with 125 airplanes delivered,” commented Todd Nelp, the vice president of European sales at Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
