THY’s number of aircraft increased to 400

The number of aircraft in Turkish Airlines’ (THY) fleet has reached 400 with the delivery of A350-900 aircraft manufactured by Airbus.

THY Chairman of the Board and the Executive Committee, Prof. Dr. Ahmet Bolat, made a statement on his social media account regarding the number of aircraft in the company’s fleet reaching 400. Bolat shared the following information:

“As of this week, our 400th aircraft has joined our fleet. The painting will be done at our Turkish Technic facilities at Ataturk Airport. Like all our other aircraft, we wish you safe flights and good and fruitful earnings. We are planning to organize a beautiful and meaningful organization on Saturday, March 4, regarding this aircraft.”

A special name will be given due to the earthquake

Noting that they wanted to give a special name to the 400th aircraft due to the Kahramanmaras-centered earthquake that took place on February 6, Bolat said, “As THY, our classic is to give our aircraft the names of our cities and districts. So far, we have given the names of all our cities and major districts to our planes. We want this plane to have the name of a district, which symbolizes that we will unite as a nation as one heart after the earthquake, and that we will heal the wounds in a short time and give stronger and more beautiful new settlements to the earthquake victims.”
